High Idle ‘14 STR
Hello! I’m seeing some strange behavior with my ‘14 STR (54k miles young) and was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience and if it’s even something to be concerned about.
I just did a 6k mile service. Oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs (replaced), throttle bodies balanced, and topping off fluids.
Now when I start up, the bike spikes straight to 2,500rpm for a few secs, then 2k, then after ~30 secs it settles into 1,500ish.
After that, for the next few mins, whenever I come to a stop, the idle hangs at 2k for ~15 secs before settling back to around 1,500rpms again.
Aside from the funky behavior, there are no errors showing on the DealerTool and bike rides smooth as butter through the entire RPM range.
Seems like this has been happening to others after balancing throttle bodies, but no one has received a clear answer on the other forums. Anyone know what’s up?
