I don’t know how to do it on your engine but I think the why of it, is in general a properly working idle leads to a more >’responsive'< engine.

I know for fact it’s important in multiple cylinder engines and I assume it is the same with a single cylinder engine.  Generally most any engine has an Idle, Intermediate(low speed) and High speed circuit.  Proper tuning of each, requires the preceding circuit to be in tune.

Brake, Insert 'arc', Turn, Accelerate
