Thread size and pitch

Anyone know the size and pitch of the threads where the idle adjuster attaches to the carb? Need to get a screw since my adjuster is gone and idle needs a small tweak.

Thanks!

No
At the end of that factory molded sheathed cable is a coarse thread -threaded portion....the sometimes hard/tough to adjust Idle knob allows the cable to become twisted(knotted so to speak) tearing up the adjuster.
It is a good idea to lube the Carb end of cable where the screw portion connects to the carb
hope this helps...

I have nothing left of my adjuster. Just got the bike and went to adjust idle but can't. No knob, cable or anything else left of the setup. I need at least a screw so I can bump the idle up some.

Suggest: buy a replacement Replacement...ensure to lightly lube the screw threads connection at carb....
