Kohler xt650 engine wire and does not rev.

Next issue...  ugh!
 
Kohler engine PH-XT650-2036  SERIAL 4429524488
 
I cleaned the carb etc and now the engine runs.  It does not rev until I manually push the throttle in the engine.  Also, there is a thin wire that runs from the carb back to the block of the engine.  The wire is attached to a spring and the ends are twisted to connect to something. What is that for?

    Yes it does.  It runs parallel to the other "link".

    AVB-  I got the engine running but it runs at a slow speed.  I have to push the throttle link on the carb in order to get the engine up to speed.  Any ideas?  I originally thought it may have something to do with the part you sent me a picture of, but now I am not sure.
