On the way home from my test drive I noticed that once it warmed up, the idle was floating between 2000 and 3000 rpm. I thought I might have left off an air hose or something and removed the air box to take a look. As I did, I could see that the idle air adjust screw was completely loose and turning freely. Simple, I thought.
But then I took a closer look at the throttle mechanism and noticed that the throttle cable isn’t properly wrapping on the spool
It’s winding up on the wrong side and fraying where it crosses. I then got to looking at the cable assembly and it’s clear that this entire area has been tweaked and needs work. I think just adjusting the idle air would fix it for now, but that cable is going to break at some point.
