Testimonial: "Carb? rsv 1000 r and carb? Anyway, it was the datatool alarm, found that many users have had the same problem with it. I was told to disalarm it, turn on ignition and press the disalarm button until you hear a "beep", then repeat and repeat again, turn off ignition and turn back on and then start the bike. It works fine now. If your alarm is somehow connected to injection system in your bike its best to get rid of it anyway."

Adjust the throttle stop screw located behind the lover left tank embelisher, run the engine until it is warm then turn the screw to set the idle speed to 11000rpm

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Almost always, your described problem indicates clogged idling jets. Stale fuel causes varnish like coating which must be removed. This then calls for a carb pulldown, disassembly and soaking non-rubber parts in carb cleaner. In the exploded carb diagram below, the idle (pilot) jet would be # 20.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
