It should idle 1200,1250 around there. You should adjust the the idle

This is how you adjust the idle you just turn it counter/clockwise. make sure the bike is warm when diong this.

Like has been said. 1200rpm plus or minus 200rpm. What you will find is as the engine gets broken in the idle will increase. I have needed to adjust the idle on both my 2013 and 2014 several times. They seem to be stable now after about 30 hours.

My 2013 500 appears to lean to the left side all the time any ideas on what might cause this
Might want to check the toe. That will cause it to pull to one side

Maybe rear springs are set on different settings.
