How do I increase the idle on my 08 FX HO?
Is this a product of bad plugs?
After storing my 08 FX HO for the first time, this spring the idle seems low and I have a slight rattle when the ski idles but goes away if I slightly increase the throttle a bit. Also, the ski now only goes about 50 mph...
Here's video of what it sounds like
Here's a picture of the plugs after 18 hours http://www.glowfoto.com/viewimage.ph...=4776&srv=img6

The idle is not adjustable and is controlled by the ECU.

assuming you've already had it in the water once & the problem's persisting - verify your intake/filter is not obstructed and check your plugs for fouling.

It idels at 1,600rpm, max rpm's were around 8,500k and the top speed was only 49 mph, I could definately tell it wasn't running at 100% I took the plugs out and they were pretty black at the igniter, so I have new plugs to put in this weekend. Do you think it was just the plugs? I only have a few weeks left on the 1 year factory warranty.

Yep put in new plugs and make sure you don't have the oil tank overfull.

Here's a pic of my old plugs, these only had 18 hours on them, typical?
