It's been happening to me in a range of temperature, mid to late 70's through miad to late 90's...

The fix IIRC was to reduce the idle by 100 to 1500rpm, which in the case of the XT660 could be done through the instrument panel I think. Either way that seemed to fix it for lots of folk.

I wonder if this is what we are seeing here?

Is that a dealer fix, or are there aftermarket options, i.e. GS-911?
