When you say raise the idle... Are we just adjusting the accelerator cable or is there an idle set screw or something?

Personally... I use a genuine hand throttle and set the first notch up for a smooth idle. I can then easily drop to minimum idle for off road use.

Okay, I raised the idle with the idle screw. Made some improvement. Really smoothed out if I raise more, but don't want to burn rubber every time I let the clutch out.

I had no idea an eyeballs can vibrate. Who knew!

There is an idle set screw. You should not be purposely removing tension from the cable.

Where the throttle stops against is an adjustable screw.
