You want it so when you lift the throttle cable housing/jacket where it goes into the carb with your fingers you have about 1/8" of play/slack before you feel the slide lifting.
My main concern was getting the proper slack in the cable
This is for a bike that I built and shipped. During shipping the throttle cable was knocked loose from an aftermarket set of throttle grips. The idle had been set prior to shipping and needed to be put back in the same manner it was put on originally.
