It's just going to stall immediately on start if the idle screw is not set properly. Or idle too high, LOL.

yea it was stalling a lil last saturday if i had been running and then sat at a light to long, figured it was jus the idle but had other concerns after that day lol. btw im assuming a 2000 sp1 fairing is the same as a sp2 other than the HONDA on the bottom right? Also is there a difference in the front fairings ?
