Carb Problem

Hey guys, today I replaced the diaphragm and slide in my carb today because the previous one was torn. The bike will start and run with no problems (there is a HUGE increase of power now that I replaced the diaphragm and slide). Anyway, after it warms up a bit, it has a very hard time idling. It won't really respond to throttle and will eventually die when at idle. Can you guys give me any pointers... I'm not experienced at all with carbs so I really have no clue what is going on. Should I try to return the carb to stock settings and see what happens?

First things first.. Change the spark plug.. See how that affects the bike and from there return to stock settings. One thing at a time, and always start with the simple stuff first.

Double check all your work and make sure that everything is in the proper place.
Was it dieing when at idle before you changed the diaphragm?
