Did you try screwing the idle screw in.

Yes, they idle fairly high. If your idle screw, the black knob on the carb, does not make much difference then you may have a problem with the screw not contacting the slide pully propperly. Take the black cover off of the right side where the throttle cables connect and make sure that the screw is contacting the pulley. Hope this helps.
