Hey guys! Weekend didn’t go so well. I was planning to use the tools at my work place but on Friday, right before leaving, he decides to reject my request. I didn’t have tools to work with. So I had to use whatever I have at home. Got to the air box, after which I didn’t have any Allen keys to get the air box out. But I got to look at the throttle body stopper. It was a long thin screw with a stopper nut. Apparently, it not holding the throttle at all. And yet the idle is at 2500-3000 rpm. I really don’t understand what the problem is. The bike runs completely fine cause I test drove it, but at stop signs, the idle is at 3000 and the bike heats up really quick. It’s really annoying me now. I need to get the tools to open everything and figure it out. I hope someone can help me and let me know what could possibly be wrong.

Are you looking at the right screw. There's two that look similar on the gen 4, you don't need to take the air box off at all to reach the proper screw. I usually just lift the tank a little bit And reach the lock nut from underneath on left side of bike. Then use allen to turn screw. I think 2.5 or 3mm allen turns it. It's the lower screw not upper
