Just rode to work this morning and found my '03 800ie idling at the 500-700 range, even when warm. Yesterday, the idle was fine in the 1000-1100 range. The idle sounds normal, and the bike is riding fine. Any ideas? ::)

Sounds normal to me. I start at over 1000, then back off as I add miles. When reasonably warm, my 620 likes 6-700, and will sometimes settle down to 500. But I'll occasionally come to an intersection and find it back over 1000.

Thanks. Knowing it wasn't just me somehow made me feel better.....Rode home tonight and the idle's back up at 1000-1100. Can't help but smile.

Sometimes an inconsistant idle can be caused by a lean condition - it can also be a variety of other things & can be tricky to cure. If it doesn't bother you, I'd forget about it, if it does, have someone start messing with your idle circuits.

Thanks. I was going to put it in for a service after the Xmas road trip - will ask my mechanic to check it out then.
