Would this be the screw you increased the idle with?

What's better than an LRP?....











TWO LRP's!!!




ADV FF Brandon stopped by last week for a beer and to chat, ( and help me wrench on a bike, thanks!) here's a couple photos of the bikes, and a comparison of handlebars with KX High/ROX risers and OEM.

Nice meeting you Brandon, love the black trim on your bike and I'm looking forward to riding once I heal up!
You sure weren't kidding when you said we have similar plates!

Cool, glad you confirmed it since I hadn't actually touched that screw, I just thought it could help solve some folks stalling issue or was at least a good place to start without doing things that could have negative effects.

Turn the screw clockwise to increase idle? Or have I got that backwards?

Yeah, loosen nut then turn set screw clockwise, or tighten to increase idle. You'll probably need to hold the set screw with allen key while tightening the nut back up. At least that how I've done it on similar FI bikes and why I noticed this on the LRP back in January when you were having stalling issues.
It shouldn't take much turning to slightly increase the idle, maybe RayM can give more details about the LRP since I've only done it on other bikes.

Emperor Racing skidplate install woes

Tonight will doing a dry run of installing my Acerbis MULTICONCEPT X-PRO Handguard Kit (I should have gotten white instead of black ), I also tried to install my Emperor Racing skidplate but ran into the following issue:

The rear mounting bracket needs to slide between the engine case and some frame gusset but it looks like the bracket (alu flat bar) is too thick and will need some serious convincing:





I will call them Monday but I was wondering is anyone here already installed one and if they rant into the same issue?


*Re-Edit*

Figured it out, the key is to insert it perpendicularly to the ground and then drop it back so it rests parallel to the ground.

I face palmed myself once I figured it out, logical yet not obvious at all. I wished the instructions would tell you how to insert the bar. Otherwise I can tell it will take any abuse I give it.

I don't recall having a problem when installing my Emperor plate and I'm usually not good at figuring out puzzles! All I know is it's an awesome skid plate....the quality is top notch!

Adjusted it yesterday - very easy. Should be done once warm, needed quite some rotations. Did few hours of testing: no stalling anymore

Interesting that it needed multiple rotations- I will test it out on the CRF250L we have at work first. Then I will go back to mine and clip together the O2 sensor before starting to adjust it. Then I can test to see if I can feel the difference between O2 connected or disconnected. It certainly runs better disconnected now (as the team at EJK recommended).
