Throttle Body

Ok first of all I am new to wrenching. My bike's idle is consistently running 1k to 1200 rpms. I have read that a cause of this could be either a low battery or a vacuum line that came off the throttle body. I have the shop manual and I am trying to figure out where the throttle body is. Can someone give me a pointer or a pic of it so I can find it? Don't want to take bike apart to find out I could have seen it easily without all the hard work (yes I am lazy ) Thanks in advance.

David

There are 4 throttle bodies, one for each cylinder. You have to pull the left side main fairing, you will see throttle bodies on top of the head, and there are 4 small vacuum lines that attach to them near their bottoms.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
