Low idle = choppy throttle?

So this is going to be hard to put into words but I'm going to give it a shot.

The low idle and loping is due to the taylormade exhaust on my 2008 without any additional fuel management. BUT what is weird is that while I'm on the throttle, it's fine, but once I get off, it is impossible to roll back on the throttle without causing choppyness. There's no "easing" into it. It just feels like you let off and slammed back on.

I've only started noticing this once its been getting cold.

Any thoughts?

adjust your throttle cable slack. theres one adjuster near the bars on one of the lines coming off the grip...
if you cant adjust it enough there, you'll have to turn it all back in (so you can adjust it more later) then take the tank shell off and adjust it where it meets the throttlebodies under the airbox... that one is kind of a bitch to get to without taking the bike all apart.

Thanks for the tip MrDude. I played with the throttle tension but the bike is still idling around 1k and even dips under. It's not dying, but it has had the TMR exhaust for a while now without this issue.

Any other ideas?

Could have the throttle bodies synchronized. That may help.
