Thank you to Larry and company for helping with my fast idle after a carb rebuild. I searched and found a link to a posting about the fast idle adjustment. Found my long straight edge screwdriver and slowly spun it around and very slowly the RPMs dropped. I have it just under 1500 as this seems to be where the bike is happiest at idle. Going to take it for a spin and see if that was the source of my headache.

I took my bike out for a spin and sure enough it was the fast idle adjustment. I can't believe how much difference a good carb cleaning can make. Many times I had to look down at the tach and make sure the bike was still running, it's so incredibly smooth running now.
