I have a 2013 550 XP. What's the normal idle speed after warm up?

Mine is around 1450. I thought that was high because my 08 500 efi was around 1150. But people on here said thats normal.

That's about where my bike has been. As low as 1350 but usually around 1400 rpm.

Yup about 1400. Seemed hi to me too as the Sportsmans where 11-1200.

My 550 idles between 1650-1750. I have a 09 and that is what my owners manuel says is normal for mine. I think somewhere in the later model 2010's they changed the idle and the clutch setup to help with the harsh engagements.
I wonder if I had a reflash done if I could get the idle lowered or if the computer is set up for this and it wouldn't work.

I'm sure if you reflashed it could be done but if that's the normal operating rpm for your year I wouldn't alter it. Just my 2 cents.

Checked the owners manual when I got home last night and it stated 1425 rpm +/- 50 . So I'm right on the money.
