Okay, before anybody rags on me too much, I am new to motorcycles (especially Suzukis) and I don't really know my way around them yet. With that out of the way, I need to ask how to adjust the idle on my '79 GS1000. I have been unsuccessful in tracking down a service manual thus far and would at least like to have my ride running smoothly when I take it out.
The problem I am having is if I let off the throttle, it will stall. While giving it gas, it runs like a top. But once I let go, it stalls at about 500 RPM (after struggling to idle). I can only assume that it is getting enough gas, because I can smell it faintly. And the plugs are in good shape. No leaks that I can see or otherwise detect anywhere. Not sure if the air filter has anything to do with it, but it does have a new K&N filter. Maybe jets?
The only carb tuning experience I have is on a Holley 750 double pumper perched atop a 429 SCJ (lots bigger and definitely more visible).

Anything will help. Thanks.
