What setting should the idle knob be set at?

idle knob should be set to a decent idle of about 1300 rpm when running.
sounds like your pilot circuit is screwed up/dirty - when you cleaned the carb, did you take the pilot jet out as well? you need to do that. Do you have a finger screw on the pilot circuit or is it stock? if stock they probably didn't mess with it, if you have a finger screw sticking out the bottom they may have played with it - try it at 1.5 out from lightly seated to start.
i would take the carb off completely, take everythign appart clean it well and give it a once over, also put fresh gas in the bike - who knows what crap gas the thieves put into it....

Idle speed should be 1,800 rpm.

I had similar issues with a WR250F, and a YZ250F. A professional cleaning, or a thorough cleaning at home with the proper solution, fixed the problem on both bikes.
