Default zero engineering throttle grips.

Hey I'm new to the forum and am not sure how thing work. I bought a set of zero engineering throttle grips for my 98 sportster. My problem is that the grips only use one cable adjuster and I have two. what do I have to do to get the throttle control and the idle control in one cable?

I've seen a lot of people just get rid of the idle cable. Just run the throttle cable.
