Default Idle adjustment

I have a 2002 Dyna Wide Glide that seems to idle higher than it's suppose to after it warms up really good, usually after about 10 miles or so. It has a carb so does it sound like I need to adjust the idle screw? Where do I find it?

The idle screw is on the right side of the carburator, just behind the air cleaner.

Click the image to open in full size.

It is in the upper right portion of this photo (zinc plated, looks like brass). The screw phyisically moves the idle pulley (holds the throttle and idle cables) to adjust the fuel mix. Once you find it, you will never forget it. The adjustment is simple and can be done with a phillips screwdriver, you do not even have to remove the air cleaner.

Forgot to mention, are you adjusting the choke after your bike warms up? Once your ride is warm there is no need for the choke to be out unless it is exceptionally cold outside.
