I made a Noob mistake...

So I just got done with my first mod. I know, its about time. I finally had time to adjust the throttle cable. I didn't have too much of a hard time becuase I used a bunch of wd-40, and we all know lube is good. The thing was a little cramped but I managed to get it done.

Anyway, I tightened it finger tight, will that work out? I didn't check the idle before I started working on it. I normally think ahead, but I totally forgot about it. I think it levels out at 1.3k rpm. Is that higher then normal? Or was that just right.

Once it gets warmed up? Well, I'm too lazy to check it out. I'll see tomorrow. Is there a difference between models too? If it helps, I have an 01 EX.
