hahaha..i think there was humor there, jim....I think I know what he means....The manual say idle is 1600rpms! Seems fast! I still don't know how to adjust it..I did see the mixture screw and it is set at about 1.5 turns out. I am hoping it will settle down after a few more miles. I assume it is adjusted like the Vespas, that is, with the adjuster where the throttle cable enters the carb.
