your carbies could probably do with a clean

+1. Also check the little rubber plugs on your inlet runners on the head itself. These often fall apart and leak in air.
Change the plugs and give those carbies a clean![hr]
make sure you set your idle when bike is fully warmed up!

carbo boots are prob cracked, (carb boots being the little rubber things that seal your carbs to the engine) ]
Thats what its been both times my bike was hunting for idle.
