Idling issue

Only have this issue when the bike is fully warmed up. When I知 coming to a stop I値l put it in 1st gear. When I知 slowing to around 5 mph the idle will rise to 1500 then I stop it drops down and dies. It値l idle fine if I put it in nuetral. It only dies in gear at a stop. The clutch cable moves freely and is properly adjusted. I am at a loss wondering if anyone has had this issue .

What happens if you hold the clutch lever in while stopped in first gear?
If it still runs, are you able to slowly let out the clutch? Can you feel any friction between the engine and the clutch? Does the bike want to move at all, etc? There's an electrical switch at the clutch lever. Does the engine dying have any relationship to the 'click' sound the clutch lever makes as that switch engages/disengages?

It値l die if I keep the clutch lever held in. It feels like the clutch is still slightly engaged with the lever pulled in. Shifting from nuetral to 1st drops the rpms down and it wants to go forward. Once you hit the brakes to stop it it値l die

you might have your answer then. Could be that the clutch is still slightly engaged when the lever is pulled in

Assuming it won't die if you hold the throttle open? Does sound like your clutch is not disengaging fully. Try adjusting it for zero play in the cable and see if that helps....if it does, then there's a problem with the clutch.
