Are you still having the problem? Or has it "magically" fixed itself? I have had this problem several times (sometimes after a long ride so I know it is not a warm up problem), and started a thread about it long ago. There were several others that have also had this problem on and off - and there were some suggestions about how to "fix" it (ranging from disconnect the battery to reset the ECU to my favorite, the "Italian tune-up" - which is take the bike out and wring the piss out of it). I have tried these methods and have been "fooled" a couple times into thinking I had actually solved the problem. But I have found the truth of the matter is that it just somehow "fixed" itself regardless of what I did.
Now I am smart enough to know that nothing is fixed and this will for sure crop up again - and it is most likely a sensor input to the ECU that is temperamental. Your thread has some much better technical discussion - and I am sure that some day it will get figured out. I was just wondering if your problem (like mine) has just solved itself.
Since you said it'll come back up to 2,000 RPM after you give it throttle, have you checked to be sure the throttle is returning all the way back? I'm pretty sure you have, but just wanted to make sure nothing simple was getting overlooked since I didn't see any mention of that end of things in the earlier posts.
Thanks for keeping us informed on this issue! But I gotta wonder... does Honda even care?Update:
Bike has been at the local Honda dealership since the 14th.
They have NO clue either as to what is causing the fast idle. They are awaiting resolution from Honda.
The tech remarked that he suspects that Honda is uncertain to the cause.
