    - So I bought my first bike about a year ago and it has always done this but seems to be getting worse. 

    - When I pull ht clutch, even after not riding fast, the RPMs will increase a lot and decrease when the clutch is let out. I have had trouble finding an explanation online. anyone have any ideas?

    - Also when the bike is put in neutral, RPMs go down, its just when the clutch is pulled.

    Welcome to the board.

    My first thought is an electrical problem of some sort.Have you checked all your fuses? Do you have a repair manual?,that can go a long way to troubleshoot the issue and check You tube for helpul vid's or tips on finding the source of the problem.

    best wishes :)
