Clogged idle jets seems a likely problem.

Any maintenance history or recent work done to the bike?

Plugged up carb jets most likely.

Hey willreilly from OKC. Me too. It does sound like you have carb idle circuits that may be clogged. How about some history of your 1500. Did this just suddenly start, has the bike been sitting for some time, is this a new to you bike or ????
