1100rpm, I believe. Not positive, though. That is what I've been setting all mine to, anyhow.

Sometimes the KEB doesn't work correctly when the idle is too low. It may help you some to idle up a bit.

Ounce I had broke my BF650 in it seamed like it idled to low too. You had to give it gas to start then ounce it started it sounded like it was going to die till the first time you hit the gas then it would smooth out. I turned the idle up just a hair so it wouldn't do that any more. It worked.

I keep mine just low enough so when I come to a stop in High Range, it doesn't creep forward. SBB
