Yup, I've done this many times in the past as well.

And how do I check the idle speed? Feel free to just tell me to search the forums if there are posts about it already  :D

You can adjust the idle by looking at the video that Chris-G5 has mentioned.  It takes 1/4 to 1/2 turn only.  You need a long flat and wide screw driver to reach the brass screw.

One hint -  Before turning the screw, mark with a blue marker the position of Brass Screw Slot relative to the surrounding wall, so that you can visually see how much you turn it.  

You do not need to buy a tachometer for this.  Just listen to the sound and you will be able to pick up the change in idle speed.  Or you can compare the sound on the video to your bike idle.

Thanks for chiming in with common sense Singh.  Yup, you can adjust by ear a little bit without fancy tachometers.  I just like all my tech gadgets too much I guess :)
