BMW 2007 G650x running like shit

My 2007 G650x is running like shit. It does idle sometimes, not very well. Always sounds like it is going to die. Can someone help me! How do I increase idle speed? Do I need to check the valves? Timing? It has always been maintained and gas is good but I am lost and fear my shop sucks.

I would PM Fiep and ask her about her recent experience.

I honestly dont know if it is the same thing or not.. I just lust after G650X challenges so I follow the threads.

Did you try a throttle reset?
Throttle Reset Instructions

(This is the second time in as many days that I have offered this up as a possible fix. It really sounds like that is all this needs though)
