Trying to nudge my idle up a bit and my left side idle screw wont budge.  When I put the pressure to it with the 2.5 mm allen it slips,  any suggestions?

 

 

Well you could try a 7/64 allan key which is a fraction smaller than a 3m or you could apply some corse water based valve grinding paste to the 2.5 key tip to give it some grip. Note water based not oil based grinding paste. Available at any auto spares store.

Is it safe to assume you've already soaked it with WD-40 or PB Blaster?

You also have a fast idle lever on the handlebar. That cable goes to another idle stop on the RH side of the bike. You can adjust your idle speed there. Both idle stops serve the same function.

Kroil is the spray of sprays ! A heat gun to heat up the throttle body before you try to move the screw . Purchase a NEW tool before trying to move this screw . SnapOn , Allen , Bondhus or other name brand . I have a 1/4'' drive socket for my purpose .

Got it today  

Just where I wanted it very small adjustment

Thanks for the suggestions

Good news!

If occurred to me that an idle stop that stuck is suggestive of the tune-up history (or lack there-of).

Time for that “Decent Tune-up!”
