2005 Malaguti Ciak 50 idles at redline. Help?



I picked this little beastie from a fella at work. It starts first kick (battery is dead) and reves to redline. I tried disconnecting the electric choke (it sits on top of the carb), backing out the air mixture screw, and even disconnected the throttle cable. All with the same results. The Internet points to an air leak? Any help would be appreciated!

Okay, I stuck my finger in this thing (looks like a PVC filter should go there but right now it's wide open), and the idle came down.

** edit I'm pointing at it with the screwdriver.

Double edit, looked at some online manuals, I don't think anything goes there.

Shut it Stan! I'm going to go through the carb, it seems to be the problem. Also the slide may be backwards, so I'll check that out too.

first have a fat girl pee on the handle bars. then bounce thirteen large un pitted black olives off the seat and into a whipped cream pie of your choosing. i found chocolate or bananna to work the best. eat the pie and swallow the pits. guaranteeing this will work.

Seems like a throttle cable problem? I can take apart the throttle tube, and it idles really well. Button it back up, and randomly it will throttle up. It's almost like the cable isn't long enough. The slide moves okay, it's oily when I pull it out. The curved side of the slide goes toward the air filter, flat side towards the engine, right? I have adjusted the idle screws, not much happening there because the cable seems tight.
