Default Throttle cable Issues

I apologize if this has been covered already, but I seem to be having a bit of trouble with my twist throttle handle. I don't know if I need to adjust something in the carb or what.

The engine does start up, but when I twist the throttle, it doesn't seem to engage properly.
I can hear an increase in the rpms, but the actual chain doesn't turn.

I took apart the device on the handle, and it seems to be installed properly there. When I twist the throttle handle, it seems to pull the throttle cable and it returns nicely.

I've ridden the bike for about 20 minutes total so far. I've got a 48cc HT kit on a Schwinn Point Beach.

EDIT: I figured out that I just needed to close the choke. Good thing to remember.
