    What is your battery voltage when not running?
    What is your battery voltage when idling?

    I just replace the battery. when bike is off it reads 13 when idle it fluctuate 13-14 still have the same problem idle very low to the point that its almost turn off
    as a result when starting in first gear I have to give it more gas.

    or maybe a coil, or even 2, one each cylinder.

    Might want to check throttle body sync. Those air screws mostly effect idle and just off-idle. If the sync is way off (both screws turned open for instance) , the stepper will just be dazed and confused
