I would start with the governor arm position, throttle rod and governor spring assembly. The L head manual describes the adjustment of all that pretty good. It’s all done with the engine not running initially. Then more adjustment by selecting a different hole on the governor arm to make the governor more or less sensitive to the speed. Maybe your throttle control plate will need some fine tuning. Those springs can weaken over time. Nice machine you got there.

I’ve been fussing with an H35 on our Streaker for a few days. Ordered new arm, rod and spring. Gonna start over from scratch. Again.

Nice it reminds me of my bronc back in the day my brother and I painted it white with a can of marking paint we found behind the school down the block. It looked cool. I think you are going to burn the seat over time with the muffler pointed at it like that. If you need a kickstand let me know. I make reproductions
