Congrats I love my xr250r If you have any questions about the xr email me at Morbidsmurf@crowfans.net To set the idle just fire the bike up and get it all warm. Then turn the idle down untill it barely runs. Then adjust it up untill it doesnt bog when you give it a large handfull of gass off idle. have fun

As morbidsmurft said, just adjust the idle by feel, you don't really need a tachometer.
