Idle thumb wheel flexible shaft

Mine is broken, and I can't adjust the idle. Is there a way to fix this, or do I have to get a new OEM part.

Nope, mine is broken. But I was thinking about that too. I think I am going to try before spending that much on something that is hardly worth the money. It is idling at about 800 rpms. Where should I set it??

It's funny, but my bike is just like the one for the web site, same color. I love the color.

IIRC, I've read several times here 1100rpm is about where it should idle.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.

Never looked too close at it to see how tough it would be to repair. Where is it broke?
One possiblity would be to keep an eye on eBay for a cheap set of carbs for parts.
It appears that the Vulcan 750 is the only bike that uses that particular idle screw

Or is it just screwed all the way out.
