2008 FJR Idle warm Idle Screw location

I've been searching for hours on my bike and Google. They say it is located here:
There is no knob there on my bike (2008 Black FJR 1300A) I'm idling at about 800 rpm and I went ahead and did the TBS. The TBS got rid of a lot of the hesitation that I was having, but not all. From my Googling if I hit the idle up to 1000-1100 it should get rid of the rest, but I can't find the darn thing. Where is it!?

The picture your using is about an inch or two out. Just looked at my 08 and look in same place but behind the r.h. Plastic to right of upper clutch cover bolt. It's there on mine.

Yep, it's there but may have slid out of the clip and hanging a bit behind it.

Thank you, I found it! It was tucked away underneath the throttle body. Someone must have disconnected it and shoved it back there. For anyone else having this issue, I gave a slight tug on the hoses/cables to find it. Mine was loose, probably flopping around in there for awhile...

Thanks again,

It is located front right under the tank. There are some good pictures of this on fjrforum.com.
