What is your spark plug gap? .024 to .028 seems to be a good place to start for plug gap. Too much or too little will impact the idle.

Also what fuel/oil ratio are you running? If you are using the kit recommended 16:1 oil ratio you can safely drop that to 24 or even better, 32:1.
High oil content can/will fowl spark plugs and clog exhaust systems.

Have you checked and cleaned the air filter?

Is the clutch fully disengaging with the handlebar lever pulled? If the clutch drags that too can cause idle problems. With the clutch disengaged raise the rear wheel. It shouldn't spin with the engine running. If it does, adjust the cable tension a little tighter.
