Did you reset the throttle position sensor by fully opening and closing the throttle 3 times with the key off after the battery was replaced?

Re: rough idle

actually you do the reset like this

Switch ON but not started, open/close throttle fully 2-3 times, switch OFF. Then try starting it again and see if improved. Takes a little while to set itself

thats what I would do, Doug you were close with what you said, but twisting the throttle with the key off wont reset it there is no power going through the unit
