choke and throttle both work off the same cable. You have to locate the cable clamp at the throttle linkage, just to the rear of the carburetor. You will need to get the air filter housing off, so you can see the carburetor throat. With engine OFF, work the throttle cable and look at the choke plate in the carburetor. Choke is not closing, so see hat direction the cable has to be moved , to get choke to close. Un-clamp the cable and move the outer housing in the choke direction and clamp it down again and check the throttle cable again. Adjust until the choke is closing when the upper lever is in the choke position. Then start engine and check the throttle speed.
