Is your clutch cable sticking? When I first built my friction drive bike, I was having a similar problem (no carb adjustments to make, but bike was idling up some). It was the cable causing the problem. I used a gearshift cable instead of brake cable, and used lots of chain oil on the housing, and it quit happening.
No, I have an OEM 47R centrifugal clutch. I'll check the cable.
