This switch compensates for the rpm that are lost when you turn on the ac in your vehicle. The ac puts an extra load on the engine that this switch then compensates for and puts your rpm back to where they belong.

What is the black knob under the left carb on a 2005 Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle do. How does it work and how do you adjust it?

That is the idle adjustment. Turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed, counter-clockwise to lower the idle speed. You should not adjust the idle until your engine is fully warmed up, about 5 minutes of running. Adjust the idle speed to just over 1,000 RPM with the clutch in and the transmission in 1st gear. This is the most load your Bonneville will have at idle speed. You may need a bit of assistance for this, take care to hold the clutch in tightly if you lean over to adjust the idle by yourself.
