Ok, I'm ready to ask this question.
For some time now my V has had an annoying issue with the idle. It goes like this. I start the bike cold and it revs up to 2K RPM just fine. And after a few moments, like a minute or so, it drops down, but instead of dropping down to 1,300, it is dropping down to about 1,100.
If that's all the happened, then simple, adjust idle. But NO! After several minutes of wanting to idle at 1,100, it then comes up to it's set idle at 1,300 and generally stays there. It seems to wait until it is fully hot and warmed up before settling into the 1,300.
This is a problem for several reasons:
1. When the idle is at about 1,100 it sounds bad and has insufficient RPM for smooth running and starts.
2. There must be some problem with either the mechanics of the choke system or the electronics of the fuel injection.
I am super picky about my machines running close to perfectly. It annoys the hell out of me to have something like this not work.
Do any of you have this problem? Any ideas on the cause or solution?
The bike has about 12K on it now and no I have not yet done a valve job or throttle sync. New plugs and air filter and all that. It doesn't make sense to me that this variability would be related to valves or throttle sync as when it warms up it runs just fine.
