2006 WR450 Idle/Bogging Issues - New to Site

Hey guys - I am new to the site, but have been following for a long time. I have a 2006 WR450 that I recently picked up here in Colorado. It only has a few hundred miles on it and has sat most of its life. I got it home and immediately knew the carb needed cleaned as it would not idle. I completely cleaned the carb and it now runs like a champ at mid to full throttle, but idles rather rough yet and bogs when first starting at lower RPM's. I am hoping the experts on here can point me in the right direction.

More Info on setup:
Air-Box Mod
AIS still on bike (put it back on test idle)
Cleaned Carb completely and all jets are open/clear
New Gas
I have been working on and riding bikes for a long time, but for some reason this one has me stumped. I have been a Honda guy previously, so I am not that certain about the WR's. I am at 6000' in elevation.

Any help is appreciated - Matt
