I have a 99 vulcan and the idle speed for mine while in park is around 750 rpm. but yours don't seem like anything to worry about. its not abnormal or anything. now if your idleing at like 3k then you have something to worry about.

That does seem a little high. There is an adjustment screw on the throttle body, but check to make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks first.

You can also try cleaning the IAC on the intake. Its a cylindrical looking device, with a wire attached to it. If its dirty it may effect your idle.

I clean mine every once in a while.
