Yes, here we go again but I don't want people getting all in a huff this time. When you complain about a high idle, what is it the bike is doing. In cold weather, the bike is supposed to come up to a higher than normal idle. Actually, mine when I hit the button will idle quite slowly as it tries to loosen up then get up to the high idle for a couple minutes (longer when colder) then drop back down to the 1000 rpm. It doesn't ever get to 1500 rpm merely 1200-1300. Now, on a hot day when the bike has been warm it may get up to 1500 right after start, but that is rare and it drops back down to the 1000 rpm.
This is the first place where I've heard anyone complain about a 'high idle' and the last time it sounded like the guy didn't want the bike to do anything different ever. IE no computer controlled advances, whatever. This wasn't a problem with the bike more a personal preference that isn't shared by the majority of folks.
Please, enlighten me as to your experiences.
