Could someone enlighten me please: there are two screws with locknuts - what are they for?  Thanks.  Phil (novice)

They are for setting a resistance to your throttle bit like a brake to make it so you have to turn the throttle off as well as on . I never use them as I like the throttle to snap back when I let it go .

If it looks like the twistgrip on the right in the photo then the bottom screw and lock nut is to adjust the friction on the control and the upper one is a positive stop, on full throttle the twistgrip rotor stops  on the screw to prevent strain in the cable nipples which could cause cable failure.
