The recommended idle speed is  1050 - 1150 RPM  [/color]  :)

(I was joking on the word "tick" instead of what I presume was meant was "tach" :)  )

Tick-over is the English word used for what y'all colonials refer to as Idle, as in "it's ticking over nicely".

Setting the tick over/idle to 1100rpm should prevent the stalling, but not if you have clutch problems.

It sounds like your clutch is not fully releasing.
This can happen if the plates have been replaced and the stack height was not set correctly.
It can also happen if the slave cylinder is partially seizing or if the oil is too thick.
I've seen this with a friend who used 20W50 in his bike.

1- Never start the bike with it in gear as cold oil will cause drag between the clutch plates and the bike WILL lurch forwards.
2- Always apply the front brake before starting or putting her into 1st gear.
3- Maybe consider using a thinner oil. If you have 10W40 maybe a 5W40 oil will work better, especially if you live in a colder area.
4- Strip, clean, and rebuild the clutch slave cylinder. If it is binding it will not separate the plates sufficiently.
