Resolved!

My bike is being put back together today for pick up in the morning- YAY!

Local shop said they did not get solid response from corporate.


<<However, they decided to reprogram the ECU, and this seems to have solved the fast idle.>>



TO MY SURPRISE, they only billed me 1 shop hour!

Though, I wonder if they are subconsciously trying to build rapport because I was in advanced talks with sales and service/parts/accessories about their holdover 2018 GW....may make the transition to it soon!

Did the dealer indicate if there was an update / change to the ECU programming or did they simply reflash the ECU to get rid of gremlins?

Garage
When I started my CTX a few days ago to ride in the unseasonably warm weather here in SW Ohio my engine ran at 2000 rpms for a few minutes until warm and then dropped back to the norm of 1000 rpms. This may be due to the cool temperature. It was 62 degrees out. The bike had been sitting for two months.

No, the dealer did not remark, whether or not, any programming changes had been made.

My Red Enchantress runs butter-smooth once again!
