2008 650 XT idle issue at start up???
New member here so first off, hi all.
I've Googled and searched this and a few other forums on this topic over the past 3 weeks. I've seen the issue discussed here for the EFI models and checked the air-intake boot anyway. Couldn't hurt.
Here's the issue. When cold, as soon as it starts, it runs fine for about 5-8 seconds. Then jumps up idle to about 3000 RPM. If not in gear, you can't put it in gear due to the idle and transmission mesh/sync. Cut it off, put in any gear, start it back up. Goes to high idle and if you drive for 30 feet or so and it will drop the idle back down to the normal 1350 RPM. And as long as the engine's warm, it's OK. Once cold again, same thing.
I checked the electronic choke. I would "assume" that if it was unplugged and 45 degrees out this morning, it would not start that well if at all. Right??? Well, fired right up first try and did the exact same thing. I took it out, but not sure how to test it. Thoughts?? My plan for this afternoon is to get it warmed up and running right. Unplug the choke and try it again tomorrow morning to see if that has any effects whatsoever.
Just started this 3 weeks back and I've racked my brain as to what it is. Any and all help/suggestions/tips will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks from the newbie!!
Take care........ Greg
