What's your IDLE rpm?

So how do you validate to yourself that the true idle is set to about 1000 rpm +/-50? Never mind, mechanic just listened to it and set it for me... sounds good. No issues.. WIND!

I set it depending on headlight flicker. If the lights dim after revving, I go up till it stop

I use an old automotive tach that I don't have mounted to anything right now. I just wire it up temporarily (looping the leads around the ignition leads, etc.) whenever I need to check. Without a single fire adapter it reads slow; but I know 500 RPM's on my little tach is 1000 RPM's on the bike!
