Question Cruise Control Adjustment 2016 GL1800

I've read a couple of threads about adjusting the cruise control lag. They all state that you can take the dash/speaker cover out and the trim around the ignition and see the adjusting collar. I could not find one, but I went under the front of the fairing and saw this on the port side. If you look at the center of the picture you see an adjusting collar. Is it possible they moved it somewhat for 2016? I have a non-airbag model. If they moved it here it should be reasonably easy to adjust.

No, that is a throttle cable. I haven't done a post 2012 so I don't know how you get to it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I think I found it. I had to dig much deeper, but there it is. Can anyone can confirm this? I probably will need to get my wife to hold it out with a screwdriver. It keeps popping back under the cover.

That's it... I also have not done anything past a 2009 so I don't know how the front end comes apart on the 2016, but on mine, I can pull the filler panel that is held in by a few quick disconnect buttons and that gives better access to the adjustment...

When you adjust it start the bike up and let it warm up to normal idle. Turn the nut until the idle increases then back it off until the bike returns to normal idle, Tighten everything up and it is adjusted perfect.

I haven't done that yet, but I will. Thank you for that advice. I gave it two full turns (marked with a sharpie) and then snugged it down. I took it for a test ride, but it was not really good enough to fully evaluate it. I will do that tonight or tomorrow morning.
Fridays are "Drive your Thumper to work day" so the XR gets some loving when I don't carry a lunch. I had just completed a full service on that one. New fork seals, new head bearings, flushed all brakes, new clutch lever, adjust clutch, valve lash, new plug, lube rear suspension, change oil, etc, etc.

Hot Schtuff and I took a quick run to Wally World and the cruise seems to be spot-on now.
We are leading a run to Tombstone tomorrow and I'll have a better chance to try it out. I can then adjust further if needed.
I finally sprayed the sub-dash heater and trip controls, etc with silicone so I can get that piece apart easier. That is honestly the toughest part of disassembly for that section. With that connector lubed it goes pretty quickly.
