thanks. It appears to turned in all the way. All is good so I'm not messing with it.

Just be sure you're idliing at 1000 rpms or better, so your battery will charge while at idle. I set mine at 1100 and it seems to have tamed some of the "snatchy throttle" business.

That's not a set-it-and-leave-it-alone knob, it's meant to be used. When the bike's cold, turn up the idle a little til she warms up. Then, as it warms, you'll notice then idle rising at the next stop. I usually adjusted mine 4-5 times every time I rode it till it warmed up.

Being the lazy guff that I am, I do set and leave it on my bikes. It is possible to find a sweet spot that allows for the leave it mentality.

That's what the choke (fast idle) knob is for, much simpler to use.

You are kidding us on right? When it's cold pull the fast idle (or choke on a carb' bike) until it warms up. Never touched my fast idle.

The only time my idle ever gets touched is if I have to raise it for ethanol fuel. Adjust the Idle warm to 1100 RPM. When the bike is cold use the enrichner on full for about 1/2 mile...at the first light if the engine racing...cut the enrichner in half....by the the time your at a mile the bike should be warm...shout off the enrichner.
