idle problem

hello all

my 05 seems to be really unhappy when warming up and idling in general

the only engine mod is a gutted yoshi slip on

the bike seems to shut off 3-4 times while warming up to about 120 which is when i usually start riding ...and even after warm if i accel quickly and stop quickly it may shut off at a light 1-3 times a ride

the idle when warm seems to be under 1000 rpms.. it just started this about 400 miles ago

i have been told i need to idle at about 1200-1500 but have no idea how to adjust

thanks in advance

There is a little black knurled knob on the left side (non-exhaust side) clipped with the coolant hose. Turn the knob until idle is correct.
