So i have a two weeks old 2021 z1000r with 600 kms on the clock wondering if its normal that the idle/rpm gets a little higher to 1.8k rpm on 4th-6th gear? You can notice this when you press the clutch lever rpm/idle is normal on 1st-3rd gear
I have a 2020 Z1000R. I have not experienced that in pressing the clutch when at 1st to 3rd gear to go to idle mode. The thing that I have experienced in the first two weeks of my brand new bike way back then was the idling is superbly high once I switched on the engine from cold start. After a minute, the engine idling lowers itself automatically to a normal level which I assumed. Now, after month of using the Z1000R, I do not experience any high RPM in idling at neutral mode or when switching the engine from cold start.
