Can't Adjust Idle down

2515 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  spiderman
I just bought a 1997 Bandit 1200. It seems to be idling way to fast. I tried to adjust the idle with the gold idle speed adjustment knob under the center cards. But I can turn the screw all day long until it falls out and the engine will still be idling at 2200 rpm. I checked the choke to make sure it was all the way off(open), which it was. Could the problem be with the throttle cables or may be the carb linkage. HELP.

On my 99 1200 it is underneath the carbs right in the middle of the 4 of them. It is a gold colered knob. But I have seen them on the outside as described by dirty fingers.
