Was Wondering if anyone can help. When i gear down in the lower gears i downshift into lets say first. i let the clutch out and the bike is idling alittle bit higher than it should I have to then pull in the clutch in and then let out a hair for the bike to idle down. Maybe carb adjustment or clutch?? Any help would be great

Idle's too lean. maybe leaking air, hot start cable snagged or misadjusted, or even a tight intake valve, but may be simply that the fuel screw needs adjusting. Bump it out a half turn.
