2020 FJR high idle speed

My 2020 FJR1300ES was delivered with an idle speed of 1150rpm. This is at the top of the specification (950-1150). This translates into approx. 10mph in first gear. Slow maneuvering is difficult as feathering the clutch and applying the brakes is necessary to maintain control with the throttle closed. I took it back to my dealer for its first scheduled service and requested dropping the idle to 950rpm. I called Yamaha technical support who said that idle speed is adjustable and they would walk the technician through the procedure. I am waiting to have the work completed. Has anyone else had this issue?

I would not drop the rpm at all. 1100 generally accepted as best. The six speed made 1st gear taller than the same on the 5 speed.... didn't really make sense to me they'd do that, but....... I'd learn to live with it and keep the current idle speed. You'll adapt.

My 2013A idles right at 1100 rpm when warm.



I didn't think the Series III had an adjustable idle, but maybe the dealer can reprogram the ECU to affect the idle.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

My 2020 idles at 1100. Low speed maneuvers are easier with a higher idle speed. No throttle, slip the clutch and use the back brake - the FJR makes lots of torque - it won't stall easily.

Problem is between the handle bars and seat. /razz ��


Past vehicles, over many tens of thousands of miles, the idle drops toward the lower end of the spec as sensors begin to read a little differently, voltage changes, filters restrict, tolerances increase... basically things begin to wear. Best to leave it alone.


Dunno if you have analog or digital, but analog RPM gauges aren't exactly precise anyway.

isn't one of the reasons for a higher idle , to create more oil pressure? for better health of bearings and cam lobes?

On my FJR (2003) cold start is 2000 and once warmed up (1 minute tops) it's at 1100, which is set by me 100 higher just for slow maneuvers like parking lots and parking. I'd rather slip the clutch and use the rear brake and not have to mess with the throttle at all because the slightest error of too much is TOOOOOOOOOOOO much, lol. Just my preference.

Then there is the question whether the tachometer is accurate. Whether one is reading in error due to parallax.

My 2016 sometimes decides to idle at 1800 for an extended time after cold start. Bugs me. Goes away. Canít repeat on demand.
