I successfully used a similiar approach.  I left the locking nut on
the cable adjuster loose and would pull over and tweak the adjustment
right there.  I didn't pay attention to the RPM range; I would get it
to the surge zone and tweak the adjustment.  

Once I had it correct, I'd stop and tighten the locking nut.  

I put velcro on the gas fill cap and on the back of the twin max :-)

Not very orthodox, but it worked.
