Default Adjusting the idle?

I've done a search and found out that I should be idling just under 1000rpm. I'm idling a few hundred low and it's even died on me a couple times when I was riding Saturday when it was 60 degrees. Would anyone have a picture of the idle adjuster? I haven't really looked for it on the bike, it's too cold out, but I haven't been able to find a pic using the search.

I dont have a pic but if you take your seat off. It should be a brass colored knob right under the gas tank.

Also, if your bike is new the stalling is something that seems to be one of those things it does until the break-in is done.

Thanks guys, I think I can handle this. lol


My Warrior is a 2007 with 4000miles on it. I just bought it a week ago but it should be broke in. The other day when it died on me, I had just gotten back into town from an hour long ride.

Also double check your cold idle to your warm. Mine loved to be just a hair over 1k when warm but each time you mod (V-Bak, pipes) double check again.
