What I really like about this bike, is that it idles like a dream. My 2011 patrol has a crazy idle, from the very beginning, some time too fast, or too slow, or it dies at idle after it runs at speed, it never seems to settle into one mode. I've gone through the carbs top and bottom, adjusting, balancing, re-jetting to no avail. But the Retro has the sweetest idle. I am not touching those carbs ever.
