Bike stalls at idle

Need help from the board......again.

I went off road last weekend and when I would ride down a hill or flat land in first gear at idle the bike would shut off. Not fun when I need power when making a turn.

Any ideas? Turn up the idle? Where is the idle screw?

again.

The idle screw is on the right hand side of the carb. It has a spring on it. The idle should be about 1250 rpm. I found mine stalled too when set lower than this.
