Default cold ideal issue?

Hi All,

I've had my 2010 for over a year, and now am noticing the following issue:
When starting up the car in the am. the egen is rev's go from 1k to 1.85.
I did replace the cvt and oils and both check out ok. on the dipstick readings. Its been to the honda dealership for the airbag replacement and it checked out ok on their "multipoint" bs inspection...
Thanks for your thoughts!

How cold is cold?

Mine idles like a pig when it is freezing hard. Above freezing it is a mild 1500.
Once the engine is lukewarm it is around 1000 RPM; lower (but pulling) in D, higher (but using less fuel) in N.
