FatDuc and idle

I installed a FatDuc on my GT1000 a couple months ago. I didn't adjust anything out of the box and it seemed to be ok.
Lately I've been getting an idle surge at stop lights. Anyone have this happen to them?
Best way to fix this would be adjusting bike idle or adjusting the FatDuc?
It's not all the time...just occasionally.

I've never had that happen to me. When I fitted my FatDuc I tried various settings until the bike ran best. It's been on my bike now for about ten years.

I've been running Fatduc with Staintunes and a K&N air filter with an open top filter cover, since the 1st year I bought it - 2007. Sometimes the idle will increase but only before the temp gauge reaches about 190F. Don't know why that is but the RPM's don't go above 1500 - 1800. Normal idle is around 1000 - 1100.

I don't consider this a problem and nothing else seems out of order. Bike runs like a champion and I'm really happy with it.

Semantics is the difference between "knowing your shit" and "knowing you're shit."
