From a completely cold start, the bike will do a high idle of around 2k RPM, which seems normal to me. And will then after a few miles/once warm drop down to about 1300 RPM, where it's supposed to be, with just slight flickers in the RPMs and needle.

But, where it really bothers me is when the bike has been hot and then sat for maybe 20 minutes and then I start it again. It starts and drops into a super low idle, about 1k RPMs, sometimes lower, and will surge and dip. This goes away and it idles back at around 1300 after riding just a few blocks. I'll link a video of an example.

Backstory on the bike, I bought it last December in Oregon. Had the bike shipped to Hawaii in January. When it arrived I rode it for awhile, but it ended up just sitting as I got carried away with a new job in a new location. September rolls around and I am determined to get back to riding almost daily. When I started it after jumping the battery, it seemed to idle funny. It would have dips and surges. And so just to be safe I took it to a local shop for a look and tune up. Sure enough the spark plugs were covered in soot and black. Had them replaced and seemed to be better. Next week slapped a Two Bros full exhaust and PC V on the bike. And now I seem to have my issue again.
