    SO I was wondering what is the proper way to adjust the throttle cable and idle cable. I searched the forums and maybe it's just me overlooking it but I didn't see a thread on it. The reason I am asking is because sometimes, while holding at a constant speed,( i.e. traveling at 45 mph and holding the throttle perfectly still to keep it there) I get like a hesitation, as if I let off the throttle and then got back on it. Now a buddy told me I just need to properly adjust the throttle. So, How do I do that? lol.

    Thank you for that. I knew about the adjustment screws but I just wasn't sure about how much play it was supposed to have.
