Question about 2005 BMW K 1200 RS
The idle speed is controlled via a servo motor and the engine management computer. It will idle fast when the engine is cold and first started.
If the idle speed is much higher than 1000RPM when the engine is warm, I would check for sticking throttle cables especially if you have added bar backs or bar risers. Check the throttle twist grip to make sure it is free and snaps back when released. These sometimes get sticky especially if the bike was dropped or dirt has accumulated under the throttle tube. Usually a high idle on a K1200RS is caused by some mechanical problem with the throttle or cruise control (if your bike has cruise)
Hope this helps
