Just bought a new 2013 V Star 650 Classic. Drove it from the dealership and all was fine. Took it on the road a few hours later and to my dismay the idle speed is way to high and remains high at all times between gears or in neutral. Started the bike and problem remains. ....

Appreciate your help!

In Au used vehicles...including bikes... have a statuary three months warranty this would be covered... and if USA is the same then take it back.

Welcome to the forum.

First consult your owners manual to see if there is an idle adjustment and make sure the throttle has spring to it and is returning all the way back.

If those two things don't solve the problem, take it back to the dealer.
If it really is a "new" '13 model, it has the original manufacturers warranty.
If you are at all uneasy about riding it, call them to come and get it.

If used, they still should make it right.

The problem did not reoccur. Mentionned it to the dealer who was quite concerned by the event ,and readjusted the idle speed slightly. Took the bike for a 80km spin to warm it up and the the carbs responded normally. Upon releasing the throttle, the speed came down slowly and upon either engaging the clutch or putting the bike in neutral the idle speed came down to normal....

Much appreciate your help and comments..
