Replace the fuel filter, take the top off the carburetor and remove the fuel inlet/needle and float. Soak up all the gas in the float bowl with a rag or paper towel and clean any sediment out of the float bowl. Spray carb cleaner inthe jets in the bottom of the float bowl to clean out passage ways. Remove the idle screws and shoot carb cleaner in those holes. Watch for the two ball bearings in the carb and replace them where they belong after cleaning the assembly.
Any sediment or dirt in the float bowl can get stuck in the idle circuits when you flow a lot of fuel, like highway driving then slow down. Even better, remove the carb to clean it out with spray carb cleaner and pour out the fuel from the float bowl.
