1. Try to check/increase the tension on the throttle lever behind/under the dash.
2. Try to increase the idle RPM adjustment on the throttle linkage at the carb. Low idle should be about 300-400 RPM.

There's a binder screw that tentions the throttle lever tighten it up a tad.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
