What is the correct fast idle speed for a 2005 T-100? I got my bike back from the dealer after the 12,000 service and the idle was set to 1100 RPMs which seems high. Any thoughts? Lar

Close enough.

1050 rpm. If you let them tick over too low they tend to stall. Also you want to keep oil pressure at acceptable levels which again requires a few revs.
You know there is a knob on the left carb that you can adjust the idle with?

Triumph specifies 1000 rpm +/- 50 rpm in their workshop manual. I.e. 950 to 1050 rpm. I prefer mine a little higher. 1100 rpm is fine.
