Default bike's performance has changed

The last couple of days the bike has started a little differently. Now for one thing it's hot as heck outside so maybe it's nothing but still thought I would mention it.

It takes a little farther to start the bike not much just a little. It runs a little ragged for about a block, then smooths out. It never did that before, it doesn't seem to want to take the gas at first.

My thought is I probably should check the spark plug tomorrow. Most likely it is fouled. I run it as they say, but who knows. I had turned the idle down the other day so I turned it back up this morning but I haven't started it since.

Do these things idle high in the summer or something.
