    Just went for a short ride to top off tank, no problems. When I got home I shut the bike off to open the garage, when I restarted the idle was pulsating up and down about 500 to 1000rpm. 8600 miles, all stock always idled steady at 1350. Any ideas? Thanks.

    If you just topped up fuel and wasn't upright it may have gotten into the EVAP canister system. That plays w/idle and until charcoal dries out may continue. All it has to do is splash in the cap ring and not on your tank for this to happen.

    Thanks I always fill with the bike on the center stand. When I let the bike sit for a couple of hours and left the cap of for about 20 minutes it started and idled fine.

    lesson, don't use the center stand unless there is 300 miles of pavement in front of you with no gas!
