Cold start high idle

Just wondering if it was normal for my 2013 fltrx to idle about 1500 Rpms for a few on a cold start up. Got dragula 2 int 1 and PV.

my 2011 does the same thing. D&D and SERT on mine. Almost like a manual choke is in use.

I took at 29 degree ride recently and it idled about 1200rpm for about 2miles until it warmed up.

cold-idle = parade cruise control

Mine has done that since new. Cold starts will be about 1300 but after a min or two it drops to normal. I only have a stage1 with V&H fuelpak. If im not mistaken they are supposed to idle at about 1100 when at temp

the ECM has a table for idle speeds based on temp. PowerVision shows it something like this:
no idea what bike that is... but the vrod was something like 1400 at very cold temps as well.

Alright guys I appreciate the feedback. I didn't think it was anything I should freak about. Sounds pretty common
