Hey Matt, they are not that hard to install. Just pull the plastic cover off the left side of the carb-where the cables go in.

If you mean the idle speed screw on the left side of the carb, then there are two reasons why it might do that. The screw you turn is connected to the screw that actually holds the throttle open by means of a spring cable. This cable could be broken, or the screw could be stripped at the other end. Or, if at one time you backed it all the way out, you may simply need to restart the screw back into the carb body. Hopefully, it's the last thing i said. Check it out.

It's easy enough to verify. Well maybe not on an '06, but anyway, remove the throttle wheel cover on the side of the carb to expose the end of the screw. Turn the knob and see if the screw moves. If not, replace the "throttle screw".

You would need to access the actual threaded part of the screw at the throttle linkage and turn it with pliers or something. If the cable is broken near the knob, you may be able to turn it with that.
