Check the mechanical timing advance mechanism under the points/ignition cover. Sounds like the mechanism is stuck in the advanced position.

Only burn the best gas. I had a one cylinder Ducati, and I could tell one brand gas from another by how it started and ran. Find high octane, not necessarily aviation fuel, but the best on the street. When in doubt, change the plugs. If you are doing only low rpm running, you will need hotter plugs to keep themselves burned clean. If you are doing a lot of good rpm running, colder plugs will work, but that's usually just for racing.

My pulsar 220 dts-i is not speeding.

It's an engine safety mechanism, to shut down the engine when rpm goes beyond 10K.Even you are travelling at 140Kmps rpm won't reach 10K in normal case.Probably you have to change vacuum piston kit to resolve the issue completely.

Engine runs fine, but after warm up and run, idle climbs to over 3000 rpm. standard trans. 2003 pickup.

An engine cannot run at 3000 RPM if it is not getting a large volume of air from somewhere. I would be looking for a large vacuum leak - possibly even an intake gasket leak.
