I think you lowered it to much and due to bad luck you cable
is probably stuck i suggest for you not to mess with it right now
cause then it will snap and that will make even a tougher repair
pm ceph (site moderator ) he will tell you exactly how to fix that problem



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

Is it a clicking sound ?
Does the bike start or not ?
No start + clicking sound = Dead battery

you mean Rectifier/ Regulator i never heard that it makes a clicking sound
If you go for a ride and over night the bike does not start & the battery is dead
then you Rectifier/ Regulator is not doing its job and recharging the battery
Have you checked the plugs connections and made sure they are tight
if not unplug them , clean them if there is any rust & plug them again

I'm having a similar issue, heck it's the exact same problem. Only I traced the cable back and it seems to be functioning as it should. I turn the cable either way and the idle doesn't raise or lower. I know the cable isn't snapped because I can see the screw going in and out, can also see the spring tensioning.

i fixed my issue a while ago
i accidentally/stupidly tried to adjust the idle before it was warmed up...
i ended up unscrewing the tank and hand screwing it back in... ill the picts up soon
