Recently purchased an 05 V Star 650...rode it for about 4 blocks and suddenly the engine idle got really high when I pulled in the clutch?
After letting the bike sit for a while I started it again and it seemed fine, again I rode just a few blocks and once again really high idle!?!?!?
Anyone have any idea what might be going on???

are you pushing the choke back in all the way after the bike warms up for about half a mile?

have you ridden a Vstar 650 before? the idle when the bike is warm is 1200 rpm, which is a bit higher than a Harley.

Check to make sure you have at least a little slack in the throttle cable, that the idle mixture screws on the carbs are dialed in properly and that the idle (knob) is set appropriately. I'm guessing first and foremost that the idle mixture screws aren't adjusted correctly. Did the PO install an aftermarket exhaust and/or air filter?
