I have a 2011, 850 X2 Sportsman. I was having lots of problems with a very rough idle and check engine light coming on. Diagnostics code said "stuck throttle cable" The cable appeared fine but the problem started whenever RPM fell below 1150. I moved it up to 1200 - 1250 idle and problem seemed to go away. What is the minimum recommended idle suppose to be? Thanks. This is my fist post on forum.

from 1050-1250 seems to be the spot, bad fuel it will normally be in the 750- 1000 and sound like its loping, don't want that XD

Thanks. It seems fine at 1250 but I was concerned that was a little high and I was covering up some other problem I was unaware of. I know the book says 10% ethanol is OK but I did consider that the ethanol or 87 Octane was bothering it.
