There should be an idle RPM adjusting screw on the carburetor. I don't know what brand carburetor you have but if you look closely you will see the throttle shaft movement on the carb when you squeeze the throttle control. Look for a screw with a spring under the head of such in close proximity to the throttle shaft and this will be the idle RPM adjusting screw and turn it in (clockwise) just a tiny bit to increase idle speed.
