Bingo. I took it apart and saw the damn bracket still there. Few beers too many?

And there is the issue of the steel support bracket, some breathers keep it, some discard it. Getting that wrong could cause a high idle condition. And a couple of minutes at 2500 sitting still on a cold start could turn the pipes red. You really should get in the habit of having a fan ready to blow air on it. If you got the support bracket part messed up, its real easy to break those plastic manifolds.

I have no idea about the noises, but it's not dry rings. Might have been the stepper motor returning the throttle blade to the original park position. Or not.......

And I have no idea as to what a blackout kit is. In my day it was covers for the lamps.
No not really, but what did you black out? Just shields? Or cam covers and rocker boxes and such?
What he said ^^^ get a cheap box fan to blow on the bike when idling in the garage.

would that cause the engine to run hot?
absolutely.

Trendkill I'd start with dismantling the air cleaner and give your throttle body a VERY good once over. If that air cleaner wasn't seated properly, or, god forbid, you've cracked that PLASTIC throttle body, that lets in more air and the motor is reacting to it and the ecm is trying to get it under control. Especially in the throttle body, as in ALL things on a bike motor, if you're getting resistance then something isn't right. Back the screws/bolts out, make sure everything is kosher, and try again.
