Not sure its correct but when its warm my Super 5 ticks over at about 1500 rpm according to the rev counter. When I cold start it I have to hold the throttle open to keep it running. I have set the tickover as low as 1100 but on my bike it makes running from cold a pain so I have tweaked it up to try to find a happy medium. If you set a comfortable tick over when it’s cold it will be way too fast when its running warm. So as per the instructions I set the tick over when the engine is warm. I am experimenting with leaning off the idle jet air screw to reduce plug fouling. I am not warming it up stationary before I set off but I ride it calmly for a couple of minutes before I start to speed up. Plug fouling has been an issue for me.
