There is a main idle adjustment knob. Try turning it. If the idle goes higher, then turn it the other way.

It's probably a formed "proprietary" hose with one diameter at one end, a few specially-formed bends to keep the hose from kinking-closed, and another diameter at the other end. (usually 1/4" and 5/16", or 5/16" and 3/8" - or the metric equivalents)

Ah, that crazy Honda! Always playin' practical jokes like this on unsuspecting victims..............

Try looking at the fiche for your cbr on bikebandit.com

Clockwise would raise the idle essentially turning it in. Counterclockwise would lower the idle turning it out. Also what LR said.
