Hey Big, I don't see how loosening the nut would make yer engine start easier, one has nothing to do with the other UNLESS clutch was slipping, then TIGHTENING it would help, not the other way around. And the only way it would help the idle is if the clutch was not fully disengaging and dragging at the engine when the lever was in..
And then there's the kill switch. I'm just goin, HUH, WHAT THE---?????
NO WAY IN THE WORLD would adjusting the flower nut make yer kill switch work better. Think about everything you said, trace it in your head as to WHAT can ACTUALLY affect WHAT.
Not tryin to be an A**, but again, think hard about it. Taking the clutch adjustment OUT would not affect any of these things.
