Irregular idle

My 2010 Versys with 59K on the clock is not idling properly, sometimes it 'caughs'. Revs drop from 1300 to 1000 & then return. I'm waiting to have the valve clearances checked - parts on the way.

I've replaced the spark plugs + stick coils less than 2K ago. I checked the air filter & replaced with a cleaned spare.

If I ride it will I damage the engine??

i have an 08 with 40K miles on it and it does the same thing on warm up and also on rare occasions when you blurp (open up then quickly close) the throttle. i just try to ignore it, bike still runs fine. i just call it a hick-up or burp

yes im a guy.
