Default Suzuki S83, 2006, High idle issue

Thanks in advance for your help.
I recently picked up a used '06 S83 (carburated, not EFI) with about 6000 miles on it. For the first couple hundred miles it ran great. Now, after it gets warmed up it will not come down from a real high idle except for occasionaly and then it will creep up to a very high idle again. It will actually pull 2nd gear when it creeps up like that and frankly its dangerous.
I have checked the choke know and it seems to be free, gas is fresh and its 93 octane, just dealer serviced when i bought it.
I am a very good car mechanic and can competently dive into anything, just dont know where to look on this one.

Thank you.
Brian

Unless you are in Canada or the EU, 93 octane is just a waste of money.......but likely has no bearing on this problem.

How about the throttle, does it have nice spring tension "snap" in the closed direction ? You should check the carb end of the throttle cables for proper operation too.

The condition you describe is often caused by a vacume leak on either side of the carb. It can also be caused by someone adjusting the idle speed stop when the engine is cold.......but if that's the problem, it probably wouldn't be intermittant.

I'd be tempted to let the dealer take care of it if all the obvious things look OK.

I agree that it could be dangerous in that condition.

Use contact cleaner and spray around manifolds if you've eliminated idle adjustment, free play on throttle, proper operation of the linkage down below as stated by Easy rider2.

If there is a leak by spraying you'll notice the bike cuts out and dies.

I just don't understand why so MANY riders come to a forum, ask a question and then never come back to look for an answer.

This guy hasn't been on since the day of his first post.

Yeah, thought of looking at the date when he posted but forgot. Used to work on the intruders a lot. Hopefully he got it repaired.

Kamikaze Posting.

The question wasn't answered with 100% certainty of a no-dollar, no-effort fix within 6-minutes of his/her asking, ergo that means you're all a bunch of selfish, uncaring D!cks - therefore, no reason for them to come back.

Makes Sense, yes?
