back with another question here. what is the ideal idle speed for a 95 gl1500 se? i have heard all sorts or ranges but was hoping to get the right answer here. if i read the guage right it looks like im at 750when warm i think this may be a little low.

That's right where mine is set. It you're not having any stalling or hesitation problems that's a good rpm for it.

Most of the one I see seem to run between 800 and 900, so 750 wouldn't be too far off. Probably make for a less clunky 1st gear selection as well.

Ida thought 750 would be a bit low for a USA model with the headlight on all the time. Mine runs at about 850, when I lower it to 750 it always feels like the engine wants to cut out when idling (though it never does).
