Hey guys,I'm having a P180 DTS-i (new model). Everytime I give my bike for servicing they screw up with idling and they don't know what is the exact idling speed to be set for this bike.If someone knows the exact RPM to be set in idling. Both Cold and Warm engine. Pl. replyIf I reduce it to 900(cold engine)..I feel it takes more time to pickup speed... If I set it to 1100(cold engine) ie 1300+ when the engine is warm..then i don't even have to accelerate to move the bike from 1st gear. So someone who knows the exact figure recommended by the manufacturer, pl. reply

Idling doesn't affect your acceleration in any way. Yes, you have to apply a few micrometers of extra throttle, but that's about it.

The manufacturer recommended is 1400, +/- 200 RPM. Just check your manual. Your calculations of 1100 for cold and 1300 for warm are perfectly alright.

never check your idle rpm on a cold engine because it may vary by 100 at times.so as veyron said set it to about 1400 +/- 100 rpm on a hot engine.anything more will waste fuel and heat up your bike a lot faster and anything less you may hav problems starting your bike in the mornings.

hi veyron,thanks for ur reply. Bajaj's manual doesn;t have any details abt idling speed. actually it doesn't have anything other than those service and warranty cards.

Hmm..that's strange. I remeber my old 180 and 180 DTSi's manual specifying the idling too. Anyways, stick with the aforementioned speeds...
