2006 has idle issues.

2006 klr650 when coming to a stop the bike wants to die. While riding at low Rpms it kinda misses and wants to stall out. If it sputters while I'm riding it I can flip choke once and it clears up and runs correctly. Any advice ?

If you are using an inline fuel filter I would try removing it and see if there is any change. My next step would be draining the float bowl and checking the drained fuel for water or dirt,rust etc. Carb removal and cleaning if all else fails. Good luck.

Not wanting to idle , but able to run at higher rpms doesn't point to a fuel delivery issue.

Activating the choke to clear things up sound like a classic case of a dirty pilot jet.
