Default Re: Carborator Question

I agree with MR1_99 except that the friction nut should be tightened against the top of the carb which will keep picture #2 from happening. the purpose of this cable adjuster assembly is to adjust your twist throttle assembly. You should screw the adjuster screw in our out to get a little slack in the throttle cable before it starts actuating the slide in the carb. This will ensure that the idle adjuster screw on the side of the carb will actually adjust the idle. If adjusted as seen in picture #2 there probably is no slack in the cable and your idle will be high no matter what you do with the idle screw. Once it is adjusted correctly then use the fiction nut to lock it in place by tightening it against the top of the carb.
