Mine purrs at 1200, anything under 1000 sets the battery charge light off.
You can play with the idle screw, but I've found in my short time that air temperature changes (especially hot days here) will increase the idle speed.

The idle setting is 950 +/-50 rpm as per the Haynes manual in section 1-1 downloadable from this very forum. I set mine at 1000 rpm.

Of course the idle setting is the last thing you attend to after being sure your valves clearances are correct, the ignition timing is correct, the sparkies are clean and gapped correctly, and the air filter and fuel filter are clean.
