200 is fine, 220 is where fan kicks in, if your creaping munch about 225 - 230 id be concerned, and the 2, is actually 2000 ... and iirc 2000 rpm at idle is a bit high, should be ~1500 - 1700

not to be an ass, i dont mind helping people, but you sound like a total novice, you need to find your self a copy of the owners manual, or service manual, and perhaps find some one who is willing to physically help you man, being as green as you are, trying every thing on your own is likely going to get you in trouble or hurt, you need some hands on guideance man.

^haha, take it easy! :beer:

You have an idler adjustment knob on the left side. It's right below your gas tank; it's black, about the diameter of a dime, and is (or should be) attached to the coolant hose. Turn counter-clockwise to turn your idle down. Should be at about 1500 (or 1.5 in your case :icon_lol:)

Your temp is okay. :beer:
