83 XL250R Carb/Cable Question

I just had the chance to look over the carb setup on an 83 XL250 I acquired. I was slightly surprised at the complexity of the top part of the carb: in addition to the throttle cable it has two more cables (one more than I expected); plus a fancy looking carb top and what appears to be a fast idle cam.

Before I tear into it, are the any specific oddities or weirdnesses to check out before trying to cleanit up and test fire the motor? This carb looks slightly more complex than even a CV type. (Of which I have too much experience with Mikunis and Bings)

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.
