Okay so the last couple days i notice it seems like my bike is idling slow it is idling at about 800 rpms........ Is this about right or not. I also notice that somtime when you start it it will die after that. But i'm also noticing about 1/4to 3/8 of slack in my throttle now there is alot there. What should the idle be set at? and where is the idle screw

It's not from slack in the throttle cable, but you can adjust the slack with the adjuster in the front throttle cable. It's located right under the clutch lever and you screw it apart to take up the slack,

Idle speed is controlled by an ISC, or Idle Speed Control valve on your air box. There really isn't an idle screw to adjust, but there's a process in the throttle body synchronization procedure to adjust it to sync the throttle bodies.
