Fast Idle At Cold Start Not Working Properly
I have an '08 DL 650 ABS. At about 10,000 km I noted that the fast idle at cold start does not work properly anymore. At times the engine fires up, then immediately stalls. It has always continued to run at the second punch of the starter, but does not fast idle anymore (i.e. idle at 1800 RPM until it warms up). Instead, it goes immediately to normal idle speed (~ 1300 RPM) or maybe even a little lower. Most times it will start at first punch of the throttle, but it still doesn't fast idle. When warm it behaves as always (no problems, idles at 1300).
I'm now at about 11,000 km. Did anyone else experience this peculiarity? If this is as bad as it gets, it's really not a bother. But I have 2 months of warranty remaining and am wondering if it may get progressively worse. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences?
