    My bike runs good but idles very high

    if you can't adjust the idle screw down, the problem will be that the throttle cable is sticking or adjusted too short, or that you have an air leak where the carb attaches

    Do I need a gear puller for taking this motor apart and ceiling where the gasket is leaking I've never done work like this before

    first, clean motor very well - run it just a bit and look to see where any oil residue starts to show

    it may be just a seal that's crooked, or the case screws need tightening, or something else entirely

    read a lot here about those kinds of things before planning any work
