petcock vacuum hose

Would a leaky vacuum hose cause idle issues? The bike never seems to run out of gas but I am trying to find the cause of my low idle.

Usually a vacuum leak will lean the mixture and cause the idle to rise. Have you adjusted the idle mixture or the idle speed adjustment to get proper idle?
Can you describe what it is doing?
