Gen 1 1200 and 600 idle knob

Idle knob fix . What a stupid position ,you just can not get at it .If the motor is hot you burn your fingers . With gloves on you can not reach it .
I fixed the problem today while I had carbs off .
Remove carbs 
turn carbs upside down and let petrol poor all over your good floor .
Remove idle screw knob and spring .
Throw it over  your worst neighbours fence . He will have sleepless night thinking about what he owns that it fell out off .
Luckily you bought a zzr250 idle knob (about 200mm longer ) for $10 and got a free gearbox  and dvd .(yes it did happen ) That's 3 zzr250 gearboxs I have
Screw in place ,. 
Replace carbs .

Ha ha, I know what your talking about...pain in the arse !!!
I use riggers gloves, (when engine is hot) then I sit on the bike, lay forward on the tank, and if someone was to watch me, would look like I was hugging the fuel tank, but I use both hands to turn the idle screw, by sticking my hands under and through from either side. Quiet easy like this.

Cold engine, no problems.
