Idle problems...?

When my 07R6 is in neutral or 1st gear the bike seems to have an erratic idle and will not hold a steady rpm. Is this dues to idle issues? Is there and adjustment for that or is this something else? I tried seafoam ( thinking injectors needed a good cleaning and ran it til it was on E but no improvements. Suggestions, thoughts, and opinions welcome.

I don't remember where it was on my 04, but on my 06 its on the right hand side of the intake right beside the frame. Its going to be somewhere along the intake right in line with the butterflys. Only use contact cleaner, nothing else.

The 03-05 had a bigger problem with coils going bad though. Make sure all 4 cylinders have good combustion.

yeah i was thinking on the coils plugs, same on the air filter being dirty.. since i clean the chain and it was really dirty.. (previous owner didnt clean it too much, but i can tell he didnt abuse of this bike probably he was a a noob like myself)

16000 if I'm guessing right. And for those who say take it to Motorcycles Unlimited, i was hoping this could be a do it yourself fix. Patrick I see you have already stopped by, so any input will be much appreciated. Oh and the rpms are bouncing btwn mid 1500 range to low 2000 range. I jus recently purchased it so I have no clue what air filter is in it but if were to guess the stock yamaha one from a dealer, running synthetic oil and m4 slip on with cat still in place

Check the plugs and air filter.
I will say I'm seeing a lot of R6's with 15-18k miles with VERY tight exhaust valve clearances causing all kinds of issues. From poor idling to hard hot starting to poor mid range performance.
