Ride the bike for a couple of hours and see if the clutch doesn't get better on its own. Brand new clutches have a tendency to drag a bit until "burned in", especially most of the lower cost aftermarket plate sets.

Your spark plug will always look white if you use unleaded fuel. And of course, the main jet only affects wider throttle openings, so if the idle is lean, the main won't affect that. Read the jetting guide in Common Threads.
