Idle problems/Gearing questions

Second is a gearing question. I'm stalling this thing a bit too often and having trouble going up rocky trails - can't seem to crawl smoothly. It's got the stock sprockets and I was considering going to a 52 tooth rear. Is this a good start? I don't want to think about a flywheel weight, at least not now.

For the stalling, yes a 52T will help. Use the stock chain and it'll move the rear wheel up to make it easier to turn in the tight stuff. Some have even gone to a 13T countershaft sprocket.
Oh and cut that throttle stop and really enjoy the power you have

And yes, gear it down. Either a 13t front or 52 rear...real improvement!

Try adjusting your fuel screw out 1/4 turn at a time to see if that helps. Most recommendations are not to go over 2 turns. If you need more than 2 turns to improve things, you need a different pilot jet.
DO you have any popping on deceleration? If so, combined w/your idle problem, that would indicate a lean condition in your pilot circuit...
