RPM adjustment

I read in another post that raising the idle speed a little helps with the popping. I want to adjust mine but can't find the adjustment knob. Where is it located?

on the 900 its right behind the intake. I can't speak for the 1700, but its worth checking it out.

I grabbed a fistful of throttle and all my worries disappeared.

Thanks. That's where it was located on my vn2000. I quickly looked today but plan to take another look tomorrow.

It's done electronically on the 1700. Just read your owners Manuel.
Let me know if you can't find it.

start the bike and let it warm up, sit on it and kick stand up in neutral. just push in the right top thumb switch , (hold in ) the screen will change push in again and dont hold you'll see a zero thumb the switch towards the left or right and you'll see 0 thumb theft or right to see +50 +100 +150 or -50 -100 just pick one. i personally like =50 good luck
