If it just starting happening, probably dirty carbs. If its been this way, you may need a carb sync. Also, check to make sure your carb boots are not dry rotted so they are sucking air. Take some wd-40 and spray around your carbs, especially around the mounting boots while the bike is running. If the rpms change while you do this, you probably have rotted boots or possibly just loose ones. But my first guess would be dirty carbs.

2005 Honda CBF 250 idle screw adjustment @

Hi, Anonymous you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from the bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Wont idle rite runs real ruff

Could be low idle and needs raised but may be the IAC sensor. Take off air intake assembly and clean the throttle body real good. Let it air out and then put assembly back on and try.

1993 gmc jimmy slt when started wont idle just gos to a rough idle that shakes the truck then dies out when running if i give it gas will just bog and if i slitly tap the pedle a little bit really fast ...

There are a number of sensors and controls that can cause this problem (mainly MAF, TPS, IAC motor, EGR valve, O2 sensor) and you will have to figure out which one (or more) is causing the problem. First check for error codes with an OBDI code checker and follow up on the results.

1999 f250 v10 automatic my 4x4 goes in but wont come out

Well thell do that sometimes but it sould come right out if you turn the wheel to one side or the other and back up a couple of feet if that doesnt work then you got an issue. might want to check the transfer case shift motor they can cause some real issues but hey what do you do ? just replace it they are pretty simple and can really save some headache to just fix it right :) good luck
