Are you using the Enrichner when the bike is cold, it idles high, and then turning it down later when the bike is warm and the idle is now 500 rpm.

An idle when warm of 500 rpm is a little low.

Negative, bike did the opposite.

Started idling at 500, then went up to 1500-1800. But after 20 minutes or so at idle. It began dropping rpm and stalling out. For instance, it would die, so i start it back up keep the clutch in and RPM is about 1500-1800. Let clutch go and RPMs drop to 500 and then stalls out. Bike is in neutral, before anyone asks.
