fast idle??

my bike has recently started having an issue with idling at about 3000 rpms after riding for a bit. i've noticed it when i let off the throttle to decelerate and it doesn't slow down like it's supposed to. i pull in the clutch and it's revving at 3-4000 rpms. it's not the cable... if i crank on the throttle, it settles back down. any ideas??

Do you have the normal idle set to 1100-1200rpm? It's best there.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Funny you should mention, although mine was the opposite. My bike no longer had much of a fast idle, usually around 14-1500 rpm. Following the instructions in the factory manual, it states to adjust the fast idle cam screw to obtain a reading of 1.3 volts at the TPS. No matter where turned the screw, I would see 4.8 volts. This was with a stone cold engine and double/triple checking the instructions.

I ended up just turning the screw to obtain the 2000 rpm specified and calling it a day. It seems to function well, the idle settles down to 1200 within a few moments.

I did find that if you remove the left fairing panel, hold the throttle wide open, you can (if ur hands are small, and using an extreme short phillips screw driver) you can get at the screw to adjust the fast idle speed. I am still curious however, why I could not change the voltage reading.

Upon inspection, there was noticable wear on the fast idle cam and roller, enough to decrease the fast idle speed considerably. Note that my engine has been started a zillion times, therefore the wear.

I also checked my TPS, using dealer mode. All was well. As I did not have a security torx bit, I removed one screw at a time with a small needle-nose vice grip and cut a slot in the screw heads in order to use a slotted screw driver in the event adjustment was required.

Cheers!

My DL1000 has been doing this ecently, the "warm" idle is around 1k rpm, it seems to jump to 3200 and stick while I am throttled around 3100. My cold idle never really jumped up, even during the winter months.

See the procedure for troubleshooting the fast idle at http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,7512.0.html

So I adjusted the cold idle setting, it was considerably out of spec. When I adjusted it to proper rpm's the bike idles at about 2k for a couple of seconds, at the higher rpm it idles at 3.5-4K for a couple of minutes until warm. That little adjustment made a huge difference, also it no longer jumps to high idle while riding, a definite bonus.

benny802...I had a fast idle on my 05 that would return to normal if I twisted the throttle closed.

I adjusted both the throttle 'pull' and 'return' cables; now it hits idle every time I decel. I think the cable stretch over time and need to be brought back into spec.

That could be the case on your 02. Just a thought.
