throttle cable adjustment

i am wondering where i should start when adjusting my throttle cable; should i begin tightening down by the carb or up by the handle bars?

also, when should the carb idle screw be adjusted, before or after the throttle cable?

thanks for any enlightenment

:)

Re: throttle cable adjustment

Adjust the cable at whatever end is convenient. Leave a tiny bit of slack to assure that the carb's throttle slide (or plate) completely closes when the throtle grip is released.

Idle adjustment should be the very last thing done during a tuneup.. and only done on a thoroughly warmed-up engine.
