Once the bike is up to full operating temperature, remove the air filter cover. Just forward of the top of the carburetor, there is an idle speed stop screw. Turning the screw counterclockwise will lower the idle speed.

Good Luck

How do you adjust the idle on a 2005 XL 883 sportster

If it's got the original carburetor, there is a screw at the top right of the carb. You'll see the black square cap on the carb, look just to the right of that. You may have to take the air filter off in order to get to the screw. Adjust the idles speed when the engine is at full operating temperature. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the idle speed.

Ride safe

Wondering if anyone knows where the adjuster for the carburetor is located on a 2001 1200 Sportster custom

Unless the carburetor has been modified, the only adjustment is the idle speed. The Idle Stop screw is located at the upper right side of the carb. You may have to remove the air cleaner cover to access the screw. Clockwise rotation increases the idle speed. Adjust the idle speed with the engine at full operating temperature.
