Idle speed

I have a 40 hp etec and it idle around 9000 RPM.
How do you set the idle down so it will troll slower?
Do I have to have a dealer set the idle down with computer,or can I do it manually?

Re: Idle speed

The in gear idle speed can be turned down with the EV5 diagnostic software so the dealer would have to do it. 900 rpm is higher than the factory settings so it seems that the previous owner may have had a dealer adjust it up.
