You can set the idle throttle body sync, but not the idle speed.

To set the sync, you need to have a Twinmax or other type of vacuume guage which allows you to compare two vacuume sources. There are test ports on the plastic intake tubes near the cylinder heads. remove the rubber covers and connect your guage to each cylinder. start engine and compare the readings.... engine must be fully warmed up. If readings are not the same, there is an adjustment on the back of the airbox. Easiest to adjust with a ball end metric hex key with the seat removed.

Good Luck!

Started my BMW R1200C and it backfired now the bike will crank but it sounds like the timing is off or something like that will not idle


Check the air tube to the throttle body on the left side. They blow off when they backfire and cause all kinds of idle problems.

Idle stabilisation valve or TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
You can reset the TPS - Turn the bike on, but dont start it.
Turn the throttle to full on - release, do this three times.
Turn the bike off.
Turn on and start.
The idle stabilisation valve can be cleaned, but a replacement is relatively cheap and easy to replace. They get gunged up and liberal so can't close fully - the ECU tries to open and close it to the required setting, hence the surging idle. Use carb cleaner around the butterfly and stepper motor areas and see if that sorts it.
