Crazy High Idle With New Idle Air Control Valve

Hello, and thank you for allowing me to join! I found this forum, while trying to locate the answer to the following issue.
I have a fuel injected, 2013 Honda Rancher 420. Just put a new idle air control valve in, to deal with a sudden dropping dead problem. Now the idle runs so high, that if you put it in reverse, you cannot apply the brakes hard enough to get it to stop. In forward gear, there is no way to downshift because the idle is so high. What is the matter with the thing? Can someone help? Thank you so very much!
