Trimmer throttle

Not a chainsaw, but I have a Shindaiwa T282. It's about 10 years old and had a couple issues with the carburetor. I put new gaskets and diaphragm in it. It runs great! One thing though, since the rebuild full throttle isnt full throttle on the throttle lever. Not sure why, I didnt unhook the throttle cable when i took it apart.

I'll run it to what should be max rpm and there is about 1/4 to 1/8 inch left on the throttle lever. If I go passed that it starts bogging down.

Is it just as simple as a cable adjustment? Never messed with that before so not sure how. Thanks!
