Mine actually does the opposite. I have to pull the choke a little bit to dump some fuel in to carbs to help bring it down.

my zr 700 was doing the same thing, idle way down then die. Check and make sure your foam in the vents by your knees is in place and try some gas line antifreeze in your gas. Also if you are getting a lot of snow under the hood put use some duct tape and cover some of the vents. This stopped mine from doing it...

Iso in your tank is an excellent idea, you might also want to check that the boots from the air box to the carbs are both on correctly, if loose tie em tight with tie straps.........not a common problem on the 800 but it is on the 900.
Almost forgot to ask.......is your air box gutted? Yup that'll do it as will your footwell filters being out of place or removed.
I've also taped up the footwell openings on the front side behind both the driven clutch and brake rotor to keep dust out, seems to be working top notch so far.

Hi Robb.
