For the idle issue I would look at the idle jet and/or fuel/air screw, making one adjustment at a time.
To get the idle jet correct might take some trial and error.
Fuel air screw can be made by setting the idle high, so it's not running on the idle circuit and adjust the screw until you reach a max in the idle speed. I've had good luck with that.
For the throttle bog I would look at the needle position, again making one adjustment at a time.

I've never owned an RFS bike so I could be talking out of my ass.
