sorry, another newbie with a million questions

So I recently got  a 2006 Ural troyka. I am concerned it may be running too fast on idle.  Seems fast to my ear, and without a tach I cant say for certain where it sits.  

But, in doing some research I did find a youtube video of a guy selling a ural that seems to be running pretty much at the same idle speed mine is.  So based on this video,  assuming mine is set at the same idle speed, would you say its too high?  This isnt mine, just sounds by ear very close to where my idle is running.  


Skip to 1:55 to hear it running

I don't guess I would Mess around with carb settings!! and I don't see jetting for Idle Speed either...
There is an Idle adjustment screw..Turn it Out to reduce idle.
The Slack in the throttle cables, is a way to get both carbs the same on this...If [Big Word] the carbs were synced to begin with.
Anyone who ever owned a twin cylinder British bike can help you with this..

Aye deff go through the adjustments first ...my 2005 would not cure and i tried everything. I had to put in slightly bigger jet and it was sorted right away ..i'm not the only one that had to do this as i remember, at the time, taking it back to the dealer who had to do it on several bikes. I didn't just make it up.

I also did it for an older model but that was a home job involving a small file haha
