Where to set Idle?

Once the engine is fully warmed up, should the idle be set low enough to where it is "bluping" as if a car with upgraded cams would? Or should I raise the idle till it has a smooth sounding idle?

Check your owner's manual, it will be listed there. Each bike is a little different.

Now if you're hearing a lope (you call "bluping"?), likely, your bike is not completely warm yet, but in my experience, the 636 has that sound naturally as do a lot of FI bikes.

Unless you're suffering performance issues, I wouldn't worry about it.
