05 Yamaha R1 Running Rich

I am running rich in fuel and have been searching the internet and could not find anything on google.
When i blip the throttle in neutral and it goes below idles and catches and/or either stales.
It has a power commander III but have never smelled with one personally so i have no extra cords so i was wondering if i could adjust whiles its on the bike.
Is there any way i can make it run a bit more lean because im also smelling a heavy amount of un burned fuel and suffering from fuel mileage.
If anyone could point out any directions on how to adjust fuel ratio, would be great.
