Mein Auto: 2009 g650 x-country

I found the answer on the adventure rider forum. Issue seems to be grime in the idle accuator (in throttle body). I checked mine and I was surprised at the amount of black grime in the accuator and it's housing for a bike with 800 miles? The air filter was real clean and the air box was pretty clean.

I am wondering about that hose that comes from the block and goes into the air box. I guess thats crank case ventilation (oil vapor being sucked into cylinder and maybe accuator causing black crud?). maybe was some type of lube that went bad or was a bad choice?

Still investigating root cause.

I want to thank all for the help. I may even keep the bike....
