Help, high Idle Rpm?

I have a 2012 250r. When i start it warm it up, usually the bike stays on 1500 rpm (idle) but once i ride it for like 10 min, the rpm go tot 2000 and then climb to 3000 (idle) when im just sitting there in traffic. Its my first bike so im not sure if that is normal or what should i do. I havent played with the idle adjuster and i dont think anyone else did so...any help would be appreciated.

mine did that too once i got around 1k miles… it was the carburetor that needed to be adjusted and tuned. Once i got my full exhaust on, K&N pod filter & carburetor jet kit and got it tuned on the dyne, its been perfect since..!!

2009 Cobalt Blue Ninja 250R ~1k miles
PLM CF Full system exhaust, K&N direct pod filter, re-jetted carbs & full dyno tune. 32 whp & 15 ft lbs

It is not uncommon for the idle to get high after the bike has warmed up. You will notice that when the temps are cooler in the mornings and get warmer as you ride. The best thing to do is get familiar with where you idle adjustment screw is, as you will need to make adjustments on the fly sometimes specially as the outside temps fluctuate from cold to warmer days. The best thing to do is set the proper idle speed once the bike is fully warmed. Once the season temps become steady, you should not have to make any adjustments until it turn cold again.

Just adjusted mine... Would ideal at 2000 and if reved slightly would stick to 3000 for a sec. Now I did try adjusting two scews on the right side of the bike (2007) ..Would this control the sensitivity of my throttle?? ..Can anyne help explain this to me? (sorry to thread jack)

Idle is now set to 1600-1500 is that good?? My idle doesnt sit well either.. it jumps slightly just like my car but my car doesnt have any cats and it has an CEL because of that (i know how to fix the cars CEL light) but should I be conserned about the ideal?? I've got 3,500 miles...

Do I need to get my corb checked on this bike?? Do people have to get these changed or adjusted from time to time?? Since mine is a US bike is it set up for California standards????
