There was some previous discussion on it being a no-no to adjust the "sealed" throttle stop on the throttle body. I asked the stupid question of whether there is an adjuster on the throttle cable by the RH grip. Well, I looked at the bike show yes...there is one on the CRF. Here's an experiment for someone who has a CRF in a warm area that likes to stall when the throttle is allowed to slam shut and the bike rolls to a stop. Fiddle with the adjuster on the cable to the point where the idle is slightly elevated....go out and see if the bike still stalls. If it no longer stalls, then "idle speed setting" via the throttle stop is a fix of sorts. But I think thoroughly studying the service manual is essential. Mine's on order...when it arrives? Who knows!
