Follow up on above post.
Its the side centre panel above the fan shroud
Do not remove choke cable.
simply take out the 2 screws and let the panel hang gently.

If you take out the choke cable or it falls out you also need to remove the top cover to put it back in

Be careful shifting after increasing the idle rpm. If you have difficulty shifting in and out of gear DO NOT force the lever. Forcing the lever can damage the shift cables & linkage or more expensively something inside the transmission.

The primary/drive clutch is activated by centrifugal force and increasing the rpm can cause the clutch to lightly engage and the transmission does not like to shift while it's powered/turning. If you ever do have trouble shifting in or out of gear shut the engine off, then shift and re-start the engine until you can get it fixed.

Ive read about the shifting issues and currently experience zero issue with the machine ( knock on wood) I have a complete understanding on the clutches etc I just took a quick poke around to bring up the idle im like where the heck is this thing I've had two replies which im great full for but they mentioned a cover and like two screws and beware of the choke cable ...is this area accessible under y dump bed or the seat? I hadn't gotten out to the barn yet but today would be a good day to get er done lol thanks again for your help regards Rick

Accesible from the bed but its located under the filter housing.
Theres also a small little cover behind the passenger seat i sometime use to peek through.

I removed the screws and peeked behind the plate the choke cable is very taught and doesn't leave much room for viewing inside.i looked at every angle and just can't see the darn thing so I put the plate back as not wanting to knock the choke linkage off and have a project however I have an access hole just to the right of the hole for the choke cable I'd almost bet it's for adjustment...I just didn't see any screw head to suggest a Phillips torx etc.. what a project for something so simple im almost to the point of adjusting it by the cable ..geez

You just need to push the plate down a little, the idle is almost in front beneath the choke linkage to the left side of the carb.

You could do it from the hole prolly but its way more fiddly.
I believe it takes a flat blade screwdriver but otherwise its a philips head and not something special

Ill try and see if I can maybe access it through that hole id almost bet that's why it's there but when I had the cover unscrewed I saw what could be the screw it was brass in color I believe
