Recently, my idle is inconsistant. The bike normally idles well below 2000 pm, now the past 2 time s I've ridden the bike 2 and from work at red lights my idle jumps to 2000,2500 just under 3000(choke is not on at all) What can I check? I though I was out of gas the first time but the bike only took 2 gal, so that's out.Does anyone have any ideas?

Check the throttle cables. Improper adjustment and improper routing can cause the idle to jump. When is does this try backing off the idle adjustment. If nothing happens something is holding open the throttles. A vacuum leak like one of the vacuum tubes being off will cause the idle to be high.
