Hi guys well i have an 05 and it sounds like it has a high idle but it only shows up around 16-18k. Ive had other people ask why it sounds like it has such a high idle. When im riding its fine the temp stays down but when i come to a light or traffic within just a min it jumps up to 220 and will continue to rise even with the fan on...i will have to shut it off until traffic begins to move. just wondering if anyone knew what was going on or at least a clue? thanks

when was the last time you did a coolant flush? what type of coolant are you using? have you checked the level of coolant?

im in virginia today it was only high 70's if that and this was happening. the coolant looks real clean only 6500 miles on bike but i havnt gotten the coolant flushed. I bought the bike in march of this year. I just wasnt sure if the over idle was a cause of this?

Well one thing... my bike redlines at 15K so I'd say 16-18K is slightly more than idle. Just kidding

I'd say to check/change your coolant. I'm not going to explain all the reasons but yhe bike reads the engine temp from the coolant and adjusts the idle acordingly. If you have coolant problems... you have overheating problems and idle speed problems. All might be fixed with one stone.

flush and replace coolant and make sure to give it a good burp and 2-3 good flushes with distilled water. go from there.
