Trust me! Its better to have an idle than not too. Basic steps: Adjust the throttle cable(not too tight) and TB screw. TB screw I am not sure if you need to jump the ECU while you correct this?

the idle screw wont make you loose performance...tighten up the throttle cable until your idle starts to go up, and then loosen it until it goes down to where you want it. there should be a little give in the throttle cable while the motor is off
