well there's 2 screws next to each other.. one i believe is the throttle stop screw (the higher one that i believe you are referring to as the "idle") and then there is a lower one called the air mixture screw in the article... then later on it says this in the FAQ:

_" The bike is nearly impossible to start, it takes a very long time and even once it does start will not idle very well until it is warm.

o Try turning the idle mixture screw in slightly. 1/8th-1/4th turn.

The bike starts and idles, but bogs down/dies as soon as it’s given gas, especially when warm.

o Try turning the idle mixture screw out slightly. 1/8th-1/4th turn. "_

and also

_"You can also try adjusting the IDLE MIXTURE SCREW if your bike still won't idle well. Turning it in makes the idle mix richer (more gas) which is better for cold starting and idling with the engine cold. Turning it in too much though will also cause problems. Turning it out will result in a leaner mix. This gives a better warm idle and can solve problems of bogging down when accelerating from a dead stop. 2 and 1/8th turns is simply what my bike runs well with. "_

I was just wondering if it's talking about the higher screw or the lower screw or something else altogether. i'm guessing it's talking about the lower screw.

i had it running for about 45 minutes to an hour, came home and tried to mess with the throttle stop screw some more while it was on blocks and i'm pretty sure it was still doing the thing where it speeds up and slows down.

and yeah it was turning off toward the end of my ride when i would hit a stop... at that point i think it was pretty warm.

it hadnt been ridden for about a month is what the guy who i bought it off said. ive been riding it around the past 3 days or so pretty good.

thanks for the info and ideas.. i appreciate the help
