Question about 2005 kawasaki KLR 250
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, I would suspect an airleak on the airfilter box, most likely the seal between the air filter bottom housing to the mouth of the carb. Might as well check for a vacuum leak on the rubber coupling from the carb to the intake manifolds. Pls check for craks on the coupling wall. It would also be worth your time to check the mating of the rubber coupling to the carb as well as the clamps.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

The air screw and the idle screw turn inward until they LIGHTLY seat, then back out one and one half turns. For the dead spot, pull the slide out of the carb and move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. Two notches if needed.
The pilot jet covers the idle function. It sounds like this is not the problem though. The high idle indicates a lean fuel mix. An air leak is leaning the mix. It could be bad intake manifold gaskets, carb and manifold not down tight, loose spark plug, cylinder head not tight, bad head gasket.
If you do want to adjust the pilot jet the, often it is adjustable from the outside of the carb. It is normally located just out side and next to the main jet. It will be brass and have a slot for a small screw driver. If no outside screw, then an inside adjustment screw means removing the float bowl. Turn the jet screw outward 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
