300 idles down to a stall

I have a 95 300 4x4 trailboss. cleaned the carb repeatedly, and starts up good cold and sometimes starts when its warm, if it doesn't stall. I changed the lines on the carb. how long does the breather line need to be? Ill run it pinned for 30 seconds then coast down to a stop and the idle gets really low. ive had to turn the idle jet in to get it to keep running.

Idle speed needs to be set with the engine at operating temp. There's no set number of turns. Turn it in a little and blip the throttle and repeat till it its set correctly.

I do that almost everytime i ride and it keeps doing the same thing. its not getting enough air or fuel. The idles set so high right now that it moves when its cold.

Yep. If it won't hold an idle check for cracked carb boot or other air leaks in the engine.

By intake we are referring to the carb mounting boot. If they crack and leak air in the engine will run lab and can burn a hole in a piston. It will vibrate more than normal If not running right.
