I would offer that an idle speed when hot of 1250-1300 cures several problems. 1100 is on the low end for me. The higher rpm at idle keeps a bit more air moving in the engine when at very light cruise and off/on the throttle. Seems to help with the low speed hiccups.....

With regards to idle, I should mention that when I received mine, the throttle appeared to be sticking. After a throttle body sync, the issue didn't go away. I turned idle down to 1150 or so and it completely removed the "hanging", and has yet to return.

More rough running and no answers

After reading volumes of complaints,issues and resolutions I cannot decipher my own 2007 DL1000 problems.
It was running fine over the winter then I allowed it to sit for several weeks in February without starting.
The weather went below 32F overnight and it was in a carport.
When I did start it ran quite rough at idle and all RPMs under acceleration.
So I:
A) Changed the spark plugs.
B) Slightly adjusted the TPS.
C) Synched and double synched the Throttle Bodies.
D) Checked the intake boots twice for poor seating. Fine.
E) Changed the Air Filter (With the gasket reseated properly).
F) Checked all vacuum lines for degradation or disconnects.
G) Ran with the fuel cap open.
H) Added Seafoam to the gas tank and burned a few gallons.
I) Pulled the Pump/filter out of the tank, inspected (fine) but did a filter bypass anyway for future preventative care.

And it still runs much rougher than normal with a heavy drop of power.

Any ideas??

My next step would be to ultrasound-clean the injectors.

Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

My next step then will be to research this technique. Thank you for the thought.
