08 prowler xtx 700 efi high idle

I just bought a xtx 700 efi that has an aftermarket exhaust and a snorkel kit (looks home made). The problem is it idles is around 1600 to 2000 rpm. I have put it in diagnostics mode and set the TB sensor and it is still high.
Also where can you get Sanny's shock bushings?

Air leaks in the intake will cause a high idle. If the intake is sealed tight the EFI components at the throttle body need to be checked. The TPS is not likely the problem but a quick test will tell the tale if it is. Run the tests in the service manual and see what you get.

Is that the test where you put it in to diagnostics mode and turn the TPS till the line on the left is in the middle spot? If so i did that and it did not help.

Here is info for you I copied from another post.......................
.............................


I won't be on this forum a great deal. I'll try to pop in from time to time, but between my "pay the bills" job, my family, my side jobs, etc... my time on the forums is limited to an extent as I'm sure you understand. We have 3 kids ages 5 and under, so you can understand how that consumes a minute or two of my day. ....and so very well worth it I might add!

If there's any questions you may have, just ask. My email is [email protected] so feel free to email me and I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have.

My bushings are made of Oil Filled UHMW Polyethylene. I've been making shock bushings for 3+ years now, and started making a-arm bushings this past spring. In the 9 months I've been offering the a-arm bushings, I've gotten a lot of interest in them. Most recently, the Fines Double Racing team put them on their Thundercat....and they won the 2010 Baja 1000 this year! They commented on how they liked the improved handling. I have a voicemail waiting for Reid at FDR to see what the post race tear down of the bike showed with regards to wear and tear on the bushings. 1,067 miles in 24 hours will tell the tale I believe as to the robust nature of my bushings.

Thanks for your interest guys and gals!

Todd

I used a half of a can of carb cleaner checking for a air leak but i did not find any leaks.
