Not only the fuel/air mixture, another cause is running with a dirty carb. Alot of these Japan bikes dont run well due to the bunk carb on the bike. clean the carb and jet and your on your way.

you need to adjust the fuel/air mixture. it's on the carburator, it usually looks like a screw tightened down on a spring. turn it in and/or out until it runs right. if that doesn't work, you've got bigger problems.

I had the same problem and it was so simple! My fuel filter was clogged. Removed it, cleaned it and she run 100% better! Might check that too.
