See if a little choke helps if it does you probably need a carb rebuild with special attention to cleaning all passages and jets.
Check to be sure all cylinders are firing.Check compression.I don`t know the specs on your motor but 1500 rpm idle seems a little high. Shifting at too high a speed will prematurely wear the clutch dog.I`m guessing somewhere in the 750 rpm range is closer to the right idle.
