    Any information on how to lower the idle. Can it be done without a tool ? Last time it seemed to hover around 1,100/1,200 rpm.

    Never mind - I tried the search feature again and found posts. Thanks.

    It appears to run better. In or around 900 RPM.


    It likes to fly.

    The 550 brakes are not very good. I am surprised at the poor quality brakes F installed on cars, from the Boxer to the 550 Maranello. I cannot comment on the 575 and others.

    In addition to picking up rock chips it is best to maintain a nice interval when riding with modern 458/488 cars etc...My friends 99 Diablo has superb brakes, by comparison. My eyeballs almost fell out.

    Upgrade your pads and brake fluid. 575 brakes are identical except for one rear piston size and better ABS.

    Wow, the brakes on my 550 are fantastic... perhaps some servicing is needed on yours?
