- what is "high"? what is the idle rpm after warm-up?

- how long after warm up do you have a "high" idle?

- how far do you have to ride before it's "warm"?

- how long has it been doing this?

- did you perform any maintenance or add any accessories before this started?

tell me everything you can.
