fast idle at start

I have two fx35s, and a 2010 fx 50. I know they are supposed to idle fast when starting, but the fx 50 idles very fast, almost 2000 rpm, and takes a long time to idle down. I'm in northern AZ, so it's not that cold. I found if I let her run for 30 or 40 seconds and put her in neutral it drops to 1000, so I always do that and give her another minute before going into gear. I also noted the 50 takes a little longer to start than the 35s. It always starts, just turns a little slower and longer. I assumed that may be from the larger engine. So 2 questions, anyone else have a 50 that cold idles at 2000 rpm? And could a failing battery possible cause this (don't know why once she's started, unless the battery is taking a lot of juice to recharge).

An intake manifold leak caused my FX50 to idle at 2000 RPM. Check everything related to intake air flow. It is extremely sensitive to any pin hole leak or a leaking air cleaner.
