You'll probably find that replacing the boot to your throttle body will fix this problem. I've been keeping a close eye on mine because I hear they develop small cracks in the rubber and it will cause your machine to high idle. I believe this is becoming a common problem with the xtx. Hopefully the replacement part will be improved.

My 09 xtx 700 has started doing that too. Is it easy to replace that throttle body?

Its not the throttle body that needs replacing just the boot and from what I understand its the rubber boot between the airbox and the throttle body. Theres' a few members I believe on here that have done this fix and it worked out well. Maybe they'll chime in

I found the boot you were talking about. It is cracked real bad. I wrapped electrial tape around it to see if it made a difference. It took care of the high idle right now. That was good information. Thanks. Now, what is that boot called? I can't find that part on babbits parts.

It's called the Air Cleaner Boot, Arctic Cat part # 0470-511. Retails for around 35 bucks and from what I can see they haven't made any changes to the replacements.. maybe it was just a bad batch of rubber in the first ones

The part is called in intake boot and there is an updated part# 0437-069
The difference is that the original one has two clamps on the boot. The updated one is the same rubber boot but has one large clamp that will secure everything tight. Contact your local dealer and have then call in to Cat. They covered mine under warranty even though it was expired
