I'm impressed on how low the engine can idle, and a bit surprised. Most of the solid rollers I tune on are in the 1,200 rpm range.

Solid rollers like splash, main reason why I've seen failures on typical street solid rollers with to much low/idle time.

This was the first time idling warm after the carb swap. I only pulled it out of the garage moments before. As I was filming, I was thinking the idle was low. I was half expecting it to stall when I snapped the throttle. I'm not an expert in premature wear of solid roller lifters, but I do prefer the idle to be higher.
