Me thinks one of two things. Air leaks or clutch.

your clutch is way too loose. whats happening is your springs are worn out so when your just sitting there idiling your shoes are opening so its grabbing the clutch.

to tighten the clutch is it the large black gear like the nut and spring? is that what causes it to stall? the idle raises and lowers at random aswell

sounds like an air leak on the carb somewhere, or maybe your exhaust gasket even. if the exhaust gasket is bad or loose it would cause this too. and as far as tightening the clutch, you just need to buy new springs. when you remove your clutch bell be careful not to lose the two shims on the clutch bell screw, the pop off the springs and get some new ones. maybe even get some new clutch shoes while your at it. good luck and let us know if you get it fixed.
