    Mine is the same, after 5 minutes, or when the temp gauge goes the quarter reading the idle goes down to 750-800
    hope this helps.

    Mine does this too, presumably just auto choke?

    Fast idle is fairly typical on cold start... if the idle was hunting around though this could indicate a problem such as a vacuum leak...
