Yes they do, they're just not directly connected to the throttle handle. In service, the slides are moving as often as the butterfly does. What they do is keep you from having a lean condition when...

Good tip on the sludge trap! mine was about 2/3 full, and I imagine it was beginning to have a real impact on oil flow in there.

Is it a floorboard bike or foot peg?

It's there so that you can get it down to the pavement. Otherwise it's hard to reach it in behind the mufflers. People standing on them is why they're usually bent or broken off.
