I tried turning mine aaaall the way down just to see when it would go out. I think it kept running at below 500 rpm :D

Hi guys, this is all very interesting but my 85 R4tl does not sport a rev counter. So how does that work?

Mine doesn't either. I just set it so it sounds right, feels right, doesn't go out, and accelerates smoothly from idle. I know that doesn't helt much, but as it doesn't come with a rev-counter, it's what I can do.
Of course I've set the idle mix-screw accordingly and then adjusted a bit on the speedo-stop screw.
