For your throttle, you have to adjust the cable... make sure you adjust it enough to have just a slight bit of play in it... you don't want to over adjust as this will raise the carb slide. Adjust your idle first... then the cable for the throttle/slide.

This is an idle issue for 1 main reason... your cable is loose... which leads me to believe it was hanging the slide up in the first place. Now that the cable went loose, from either wear or an adjustment screw coming loose... the idle went down. The dealer didn't have it properly set from the start. Not that it would hurt anything, just a quick way to adjust idle, but certainly not the right way.

Not to mention idle will go down in the cold...

Wish I lived closer... I'd have your bike fixed in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
