Take it into a shop , or if your confident then you can do it yourself. It seems to me that if it will not idle and is having troubles starting then your intake or exhaust valves need to be adjusted.Over time your valve stems stretch based off of the metal alloy in them some need adjusted more often and some need adjusted less often. I am 80% positive that this is your underlying issue. I have encountered this at least 10 times.

Engine hard to start wont idle sometimes wont idle down when shifting or stopsd

Won't idle down: look for dry/rusted/frayed inner throttle cable. Look for sluggish fuel flow from tank for starting problem. May have to clean the carburetor(s) and fuel filter. Are the spark plugs clean and gapped correctly?

But it sounds like the battery isnt being charged properly. Make sure the voltage across the batt terminals is at least 13.5v at tickover rising to no more than 15.5v at higher revs

Please mark this as helpful (if it has been!!)

2005 CRF450R Hard to start and wont idle

I would suggest that you have the valve clearances checked.

Also, check that the carb is clean. Pay particular attention to the PILOT JET as this opperates the idle circuit.
