i would say the answer from polar cycle is good...but if it is not the case....you may take a look at crankshaft seal..sometimes the primary compression is not good if cranks seal leaks and it make the bike running lean in gaz and having you're idle getting up sometimes.........check the transmission oil if its low in quantity even after replacing it recently (this means that you're transmission oil is getting burn by you're motor) and also remove the magneto cover to see if there is gaz accumulation in that area...if so that means the seal leaks on the magneto side.....

Testimonial: "After finally rebuilding the carbs and replacing the reeds and air filter, the problem was actually solved by replacing the crank seal. "
I have been working on my carb today,the pipe from the bottom of the carb should just run down by the bottom of the swinging arm,there should be another pipe from the pipe on the left side of the carb just above the fuel intake which also runs down to the swinging arm and connect to nothing.

Did you do the work on the carbs? Do you have the equipment and expertise a pro uses to balance the carbs? If you had this done by a pro, take it back amd make them fix it.
You are right, this is dangerous and expensive. I suggest you have a Yamaka shop take a look at your motorcycle.

Air screws can be altered slightly for your elevation. Stock setting is for sea level conditions. Example if all your riding is at 1000 ft elevation maybe your standard setting should be 2 and 1/8th turns. I suggest you try resyncing your carburetors. One or more of your carburetors may be set too high or too low , causing the slow return to idle. As you adjust your carbs remember to keep resetting your idle to the recommended RPM. If you decide to try a different air screw setting be sure to double check all you intake manifolds for cracks or separation from the flange, air leaks will also effect your idle. Altering the air box can effect your carb intake vacuum (vacuum carbs are sensitive to this.).
