Question Idle speed

I was wondering about this subject about my 82 xj1100. It came to mind while watching an episode of Wheeler Dealers on Velocity. Ed China was tuning the carb on a 79 Honda cvcc and it got me wondering if my idle speed is to high. It hovers around 1000-1100 rpm is this right? Also I was wondering is it sometimes normal to have that slap through the driveline especially when dropping into gear? There are no odd noises or anything out of the norm it is just very annoying the bike runs great for 34 year old machine. Thanks
