My 2013 550 idles so fast I can't shift unless I pull the choke some to lower the rpm's. do I attack the carb?

No, the problem is usually with the primary clutch. It sticks and doesn't fully open and let go of the belt which keeps the transmission turning so it can't shift. The Clutch Doctor on this forum is very good at tuning them. He did mine years ago and it's run great ever since.

Dane, we did tune his clutch. Something else seems to be amiss, he does have new cables.
