A mod that you can actually do to reduce engine braking is to install a racing rotor. This is not a brake rotor on your wheel, but an internal engine mod. They are easy to install, but quite expensive to procure. A racing rotor will make your engine braking almost non-existent compared to how it feels now. It feels veeeeeerrry smooth.

You can find a used racing rotor for less, but a new one is around $1,300 typically. Makes the entire bike feel different. They aren't made to be used with a street bike with headlights/full electronics, but I know a few people that don't have any problems with them on their street bikes.

Other than that, have you put your bike on a rear stand in neutral and spun the rear and front tire? I would make sure that your chain is well lubed and none of your brakes are dragging at all. I would lower my idle back to around 1,150-1,200 rpm, too. A high idle can cause more problems for you.
