Just curious, is it possible to set the engine idling on a fuel injected bike by yourself?
Wouldnt that need a change in the ECU mapping?

Yup. Very much.
There is usually a knob, mostly securely located, the needs to be turned to change the idle rpm.

Yes, that's what I mean exactly. During a cold start, it starts at 2000 and in about two minutes when the engine is warmed up, it comes down to 1000, and stays there. But now it is going down to 500 and dying on me. How does one fiddle with the rpm, man? No carb screws like on the bullet :-P.

Yeah. The FI takes care of the required RPM depending on parameters like temperature.
As told before, there should be a knob to adjust the idle RPMs. Over the time they might turn and the engine might appear to be dying out. Just adjust back and it should be fine again.

Check "Idle Speed Adjustment" in your manual !

Check on the right side below the fuel tank. That's where I have it on my Ninja 650R. It's a small knob with a cable at the other end. Very easy to use and modulate the RPM. Set the RPM after bike has warmed up.

Hi Viper, which one is the knob you are talking about?

It's the spring loaded screw that you see on LHS above the clutch cover.

Is the ER-6N and 650R recommended for short riders, 5 ft 3" tall?

I am a little more than 5'7" and I would say the ER6 is good for people who are a little more than 5'8". You should go for a Harley ST 750, something even I am thinking of moving to, mainly because of the pillion. My wife refuses to be perched so high on the bike and curses me for having sold off the Enfield. So, the next buy (either keeping this and buying a used one) should be a Harley ST 750/Triumph Bonneville/Ducati Scrambler.

By the way, this Saturday a friend went to Kodai with his wife and I thought of riding with them till Dharmapuri for breakfast.

It was a smooth ride, and riding solo on this bike is just a breeze. I managed to do 322 km in about 4.5 hours, breakfast time included. Here are some pics from the trip. I was careful to not let my tailbone rest on the seat for long and kept shifting it from time to time. This ensured I was as fresh as when I started even after finishing the 322 km ride.

I would like to get a rear rack fabricated now. Am thinking of something like this. Will approach IndiMotard Greasehouse for help with fabrication. Any designs people can think of, let me know. Here are my amateurish attempts at sketching the racks.Name:  bkrest1.jpg

I don't think you can connect that to swingarm as suspension movement will be restricted ?

It is connected to the rear foot peg stay and not the swingarm.

I got the idea from this picture. Spoke to Prashi of IndiMotard. Hope to sit with him soon and design these. I also want engine guards designed like the sw motech guards.
Will keep you guys posted.

@Oreen - You can get in touch with Aditya Bhelke at Speed@RedLinePlus.in. He rides a Ninja 650 and resides in Pune. He has made his own mounting kit. It is tried and tested so I can vouch for the quality of his product however you may have to check if can make one since it is not a product he is selling on his website.

I had fitted a Shad SH48 Top case box on my Ninja 650 too however the mounting kit broke recently during my Bhutan ride. Now I am making replica of the same mounting kit with the help of a friend.

Below are couple of pictures of my mounting kit.
