Byke is designed for racing e.g. accelerate-brake-accelerate-brake.... if you ride it with steady trottle at mid revs it misses. Do what other sugjested.

Dropping the needle will weaken it. Sounds more like its running a bit weak, hence the hunting and missing, and on full gas, with the accelerator pump squirting extra fuel in, it runs ok. I would try (indeed I will be this weekend cos my UK one is the same) raising the needle (ie lowering the clip) to richen it a bit.

The prob is that it is running rich believe it or not.
RAISE the clip to LOWER the needle to lean it off a bit.
