Leaning out the mixture usually sends NOx values up but HC values down. If US emission laws don't care about lambda and NOx, you can lean out the idle until HC goes down. Also, you can raise idle RPM to 1000 revs or so (1250 seems to be max) in order to heat up the cat more.

Those tricks won't fly in Europe (they check NOx, lambda, HC and CO here) but might work in your case.
