vtr 250 idle range?

  1. hey,
    I have a 06 vtr 250 and was just wondering what rpm it should be idling at. I have mine at a bit over one at the moment because if it is lower it doesn't take off smoothly, or could this be a mixture problem (only new to bikes lol)

    And just realised it is in the wrong thread, sorry
  2. Welcome to the forums.

    My spada, vt250L has the same engine as your VTR,

    idle for min is about 1200-1400.

    so anything around those marks should be ok i'd say.... i touch extra throttle will also help with rough take off, but not too much..you don't want to do a GP start!
  3. hehe yeah, thats what mine is on now. I reckon they played with it at the 1000 service cause it was idlin really low when i picked it up. thanks mate
  4. yeah just found my owners manual, 1300
