2007 Yamaha R6S has a high idle at 2k when first started, then idles at .5k?

Ive owned a 2007 R6S for about a year now, always kept in a garage and maintained well. It hasn't had any "problems" until now and this may not even be a problem. But when I first start my bike in the morning (its kept in a heated garage) it idles at just around 2000 and lower, I can release the

Ive owned a 2007 R6S for about a year now, always kept in a garage and maintained well. It hasn't had any "problems" until now and this may not even be a problem. But when I first start my bike in the morning (its kept in a heated garage) it idles at just around 2000 and lower, I can release the clutch without giving any throttle and the bike will pull forward. After a bit of riding, not even 5 blocks, it goes back down to about a 500 idle. My bike only has 5532 miles on it and I have done all of the maintenance for it. Is this just common in motorcycles for it to idle high to warm up? Or is this too high?!

Riley:
Amazing how this could be solved by 1) looking at the bike and making sure the sensor connections and grounds are good; or 2) going to the Yamaha dealer, buying something like a spare spark plug (it's a good will offering, dude), and talking to the service manager for one (1) minute.
Firestormer:
Sounds normal for a fuel injected bike
guardrailjim:
It runs high when cold because the choke is on.
When it warms up and you turn off the choke, that is when you should adjust the idle speed – when the engine is at operating temperature.
WRG:
That is normal.
