The idle screw is the only way to correct your problem. If the screw is broken ( a lot of people an this forum have had it break ) then you will need to fix it.

try grabbing the idle adjustment knob, while holding the cable housing. i know on my 03, it takes a few turns to get any adjustment.

Check your idle adjustment cable to see if it is actually
adjusting the. Also check your airfilter to make sure
it is not too dirty or clogged,
