It is a black plastic nut on the bottom of the carb.(Sticks down about an inch or so)

Sounds like it's too tight.Maybe not letting it return down to seat.

i left a little bit of play in the cable,seems like a lot of slack on the carb side( maybe to much) but the idle screw must have fallen off cuz i don't see it

it definatly didn't have an idle screw in it, i made one out of a screw i had laying around, runs and idles great now. the previous owner must have been using the throttle cable to keep the slide up.thanks for all your help

thanks, now something else is wrong with the quad, i was riding it today and noticed a clicking noice coming from the chain or rear end as well as a slight shimmy especially when shifting,when i got home i saw a small kink in the chain, could that be causing the clicking noise or is it something in the rear end?

if it's an O-ring chain you probably lost some o-rings they will do that if ou don't keep them Lubed up and clean.

Yeah it's a possiblity thats whats causing it.Or could be a bad bearing in the rear.

I think most of the time if its a bearing it is constant noise.At least mine was I had to replace carrier bearing and it would just make a constant grinding squeeking noise

the chain was dry when i got it, i let it soak in a bucket of oil for a day or two, i thought i got all the kinks out but aparently not. it also looks like a few orings are missing. i'll just get a new chain and replace the sprokets while i'm at it. hopefully the noise will go away with that cuz i know nothing about pulling the axel to replace bearings

If the chain is tightened properly, check your teeth for wear. If the teeth have sharp points, they are worn. They're not supposed to be sharp on top. Kinks in the chain can cause the chain to jump on the front sprocket and brake teeth off. Usually they'll break every other tooth off.
