Correct idle speed on 99 K1200LT

I thought I read somewhere that the correct idle speed for the LT is 950rpm. Mine is very consistently 1050rpm. I can't find that post anymore, but I'd really like to find out what the idle speed is supposed to be and what to do about it if my idle is off.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks for the reassuring words, guys!

My girl had a rough life before she came to live with me this year. We're slowly working out all of the kinks. I don't know that much about motorcycle maintenance, so I make up for it by being paranoid.
