When started from cold, my Wing runs choppy for the first couple of minutes. I often will play with the throttle as it warms up. If I leave it (even choked) and go away, it often stalls. I sometimes will set the throttle lock so it runs a bit higher. How can I increase the idle speed so it will run at high idle so it keeps running. Gracious....

Look down at the carbs from the right side where the throttle cables attach to the carb. There's a screw with a spring tightener, screw it in (CW) to bring up the idle speed or out to slow it. Normal idle is around 1000-1100rpm.

adjust the idle speed at normal operating temperature... go for a 10 mins ride when you come back home, set your idle speed at 1000 rpm. it should be fine for when she is cold. if the carbs are good, she will probably idle at 750 rpm like mine. with a little of choke.

Sounds to me like a carb synch and some Seafoam is in order here. I did one on my 1100 not too long ago and it has never run so good. Smooth as silk and easy starts.

I only know the 1200 well enough to get in trouble... but on my 1100 I would be looking at the fast idle stop of the carb linkage.. seems like it should be bumped up a little (and just use the idle screw after it is hot)
