    It sounds like you need to adjust the idle, you should be able to pull the clutch in while the engine keeps running.

    either the idle is too low, the needle is set wrong, or the clutch is dragging, possibly multiple or all of the above.

    Engage the clutch, then brake. Im guessing thats what you do! Sounds like your clutch cable needs adjusting?

    Play with the needle height setting, they are usually too rich from the factory. Go one notch higher with the clip and test, then reset the idle.
