As long as you know where the air bleed screw is, then do the following; Screw the screw in until it goes no further, (dont force it). Wind the screw out for about 1 and a half turns. Start the motor, you may have to adjust the throttle stop screw t keep the motor running. When the motor is running (at a fairly slow tick over) adjust the air bleed screw outwards a turn or so, if the motor goes faster then your turning the right way, if not, then screw in a bit. What you aim to do is to get the motor running as fast a tickover as possible. When the moto speeds up adjust the throttle stop screw to keep the tickover at a slow speed, It's as easy as that, this setting should be finally made again when the motor has fully warmed up (as the cold start may be in action if the motor is cold).Good luck
You should adjust your clutch lever. I dont think you are getting complete release. Over time, the cable will stretch. That is why there is a thumb adjuster on the cable. Do not over tighten. Slippage is just about as bad as not releasing completely.
Your owners manual should be able to give you more information on the adjustment. If you dont have one, you can probably get one from the manufacturers web site - which I would give you had you mentioned the make. Still, you can fix this yourself by simply adjusting the cable.
Please dont be offended but i ride and know a clutch should last for many many more miles. Have you properly adjusted it. If im not mistaken its a mechanical clutch and its easely adjusted at the cable. Good luck

I dont have a manual for that bike, but i think there is an internal clutch adjustment that may help. if not properly set, the clutch will slip under a heavy load. if it does have the adjustment, it will be on one side of the engine and it should look like a 10 or 12mm nut with a set screw. loosen the nut and adjust the set screw one way or the other until there is NO tension on the screw. tighten the nut and then re-adjust your clutch lever for proper free play. if that dont work, install high performace clutch plates. again, im not certain that bike has the internal adjustment. take a look. hope this helps...
Not sure what the Merc marine motors are like, but this style of motorcycle engine are twin overhead cam with bucket and shim type adjustments valve lash adjustments. Best way to tell you to go about this is to download a full manual from here, it has detailed procedures and everything you need to know to set the valve adjustments. Thanks for using FixYa, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my time to get this info to you. Cheers
