XR 80 R - High Idle

This bike idles incredibly high, as if the idle screw was turned to the maximum setting, but its not. It is running a cheap chinese Carburetor because the stock one had a broken choke lever and was corroded so it couldn't just be cleaned. When i bought the carb, it was a lame generic carb. It said it could be used for a 110 cc engine as well. Could the high idle be caused by the pilot jet being too large? I don't believe its an air leak considering I already checked that. At this point I'm at the mercy of this forum's advice. 


Thanks guys!
