During break-in, especially at your altitude of 6,000 ft., your Idle is going to be eratic anyways, I just adjust it to where it will run at idle without having to "goose the gas" to keep it running.

Never let a 2 stroke, air cooled motor idle for any length of time though as you risk overheating and seize up, Idle is just meant to keep you running at stop lights, stop signs, etc.
