Default Re: Engine stalls when Idling

So my saga continues!

I cleaned the carb twice put on new seals. sealed up the carb as per Norms instructions the e-clip on the needle was already on the second slot from the top, Put in a champion spark plug set the gap,

I started it and spayed WD40 on the intake and the joint the joins the two peaces together and NO vapor leak!

So I rode it for a while and when, I stopped the idle was low and sounded like it was going to stall, I turned the idle screw in it made the idle higher drove it again but it stated to idle low again, so them I moved the adjuster on top of the carb (holding the slide up) test drove again and adjusted the idle this seemed to help.

Tested a little more it still seemed ok, Checked on more time with WD40 for vapor leaks everything was still good.

Now for my two questions

So I am thinking that I need to moved the eclip down a notch this will move the slide up

And will it be ok to ride the bike to work tomorrow (14 miles in total) in its present state?
