If you look at page 39 bottom left illustration you'll see that it says to push the top of the throttle cable mount plat towards the back of the carbs as you tighten it up. If the plate is too far forward when you mount it, it will hold the throttle open and cause the same situation you are describing.

Loosen the screw and push it back. You should be able to adjust the idle speed after that.
