As long as you put "the brown thing" in right. There is a long slot in one side and a short one in the other side. The long slot goes on the right side if you're setting on the bike looking down. I just looked at your photos. The throttle cable should not bend like yours does when it comes out of the carburetor. It should go straight up and out to the handlebar twist grip. The way you have it now is probably the reason it does not spring return to the idle position. The cable needs to make gentle bends to keep it from binding. Did that help?
How are you doing on the clutch cable adjustment? Still need help there?
