    Is this correct?

    'I'll probably do that, but i'd find it boring'.

    Is the grammar here sound?

    I don't like using "I'll" (I will) and "I'd" (I would) together in the same sentence as you have in your example. Rather, use the same form (one or the other) in both phrases.

    I'll probably do that, but I'd find it boring (if I did).

    I'll probably do that, but I'll find it boring (if I do).
