2009 XT 250 --- overly HIGH idle once hot
Had the XT250 for 3 days - put 40 miles on just testing it out. It runs mint - EXCEPT...
Once it's fully warmed up, the idle will wind up -- while stopped at a light or in lower gears as well (no throttle).
For example - if I go into 2nd/3rd or higher - then stop - the idle will reduce properly - then begin to climb until it's winding the pi$$ out of it. I need to brake/engage the clutch to bring it back down. Eventually, the rev-ing carries into the lower gears -- it'll over run the gears w/o my manipulating the throttle (does no good to push it off -- it's completely off when this is happening). Makes things "interesting" at intersections...
It's obviously still under warranty - but from "back in the day" I played with car carburetors -- there were some simple adjustments for this -- thought a soenoid was involved as well -- but not finding anything in blogs/forums for this happening to new bikes (most problems for this were older models).
The linkage is clear/nothing sticking, no leaks -- I think it's just set wrong -- but... before touching anything -- or going anywhere near a dealer yet -- figured I'd solicit some opinions.
