As you that own a new M1000 already know they shake worse than a cement truck at idle.
So have any of you been turning the idle speed up to smooth it out some?
Mine idle reasonably smoothly above 2300 rpm.
And have thought about just turning it up...any thoughts?

Shakes quite a bit at idle.

Increasing rpms helps, but you won't be able to engage/disengage reverse if the rpms are above ~2000.

I just don't worry about the shaking at idle.

Thanks, I was not aware that 2000 rpm was the threshold for reverse. :beer_cheers:

A quick update.
I turned my idle up to 2200....it feels way better, and my reverse still works.
I plan to turn it up a bit more soon....as long as i can still engage reverse I am a happy camper :beer_cheers: :super_happy:

No need to be sorry man.
I just held the throttle at around 2200 and tried reverse.
It went right in.
Being that its mine its likely just defective and not supposed to...lol
