CR-S Idle adjustment

I found this thread on how to sync the carbs (http://www.triumphrat.net/club-cafe/...bs.html)...but im still fuzzy on how to adjust the idle. The black knob (hehe, knob), that sticks out on the right side, doesnt turn. And i was guessing that was the idle adjustment...

Any info would be greatly appreciated

So hard to find info on these carbs. From what sudco says, its an optional longer length idle speed screw. Still...doesn't help mg cause...

I believe the Idle set screw would be #74 of the exploded diagram.

http://www.sudco.com/Diagrams323728/expcr.gif

It should look something like this:

part 74a, is the optional longer length idle speed screw...Thats what I have. So, guessing I can take that off and put in the normal set screw...
