Rhino 450 idle adjustment

Rhino 450 is idling to fast and making it hard to go into gear once it warms up, shifts fine w/ no issues when cold or pulling the choke out to slow it down. Can anyone tell me how much to adjust the idle screw w/ out messing it up, sorry i am not a carb genius or anything, or could it be something else, thanks.

on the 660, you remove both seats and the plastic cowl. then on the drivers side there is a big black thumb screw coming out of the carb that is the idle adjustment. screw in for higher idle or out for slower. I would imagine the 450 is the same or at least similar enough to figure out with this info. Good luck.

If you remove the 2 screws on the air intake, then remove that piece you can get to it without removing the seats and center cowl. Much easier.

sorry, i have found the screw for the adjustment, i just wasn't sure how much to turn it or if you could mess it up by turning it out to much, i think the dynatek module could be causing the issues or maybe not.

it doesnt take much. Just crank it and while its idling adjust the screw untill it idles correctly.
