When it stalled maybe it blew some crap back into the
idle air bypass valve circuits.
It is the round thing on the throttle body with
wire plugs on it.
There are passageways through the throttle body to it
and it controls the idle air when the throttle body plate
is closed.
If the passageway through the throttle
body is dirty or partially plugged or the idle air
valve is acting up it will affect your idle badly.
Try cleaning the idle air bypass unit and the
throttle body passage hole out with some carb
spray. Sometimes even oil from an air filter can
cause it to act up.

I wish I wood off though about that I,ve called 5 can-am dealers and they did not have a clue I,am going to make sure the passage holes are clean got to go to Church first

The idle bypass can be cleaned and may help.
It seems a good possibility at least.

I removed the Throttle body cleaned it withcarb cleaner blew it out with air check the ohms on the Idle air control valve 1-4 at 50 oh. and 2-3 at 50 oh. and that's the specs. are good but it back toghter and still the same problem start up idle goes up 3000 plus and wont come down any more suggestions Ron
Expert:  Wayne S. replied 2 years ago.
Have you tried disconnecting the battery
for awhile and then reconnecting?
The idle is ultimately controlled by the computer
and also this idle bypass valve:
Air leaks anywhere on intake side can cause a high idle.
Even if there is a fitting or hose loose.
The throttle position sensor can cause high idle,
surging or jerky throttle response. Should have a smooth
reading on a multimeter either volts or ohms
if disconnected. At idle should be low volts like 0.5
See if the throttle blade or butterfly
is closing okay. Might be sticking.

one of the first things I tried is disconnect the battery and let it sit for 5 min. I checket for any leaks or loose hose clamps or cracks after throttle body I will put volt meter on TPS and let you know the throttle plate is closing and its not sticking Iam going to try removing the IACV valve and pluging it back in to the wring harness and turn on the ignition and see if the valve opens up in the book it says it still can be bad even if meters out ok
Expert:  Wayne S. replied 2 years ago.
Sounds good,
if you have a manual the specs might
be in there for the TPS or I can look them up
if you need them.
The idle air valve might be gummed up or faulty.
