SOURCE: fuel mixture screw
Begin by screwing the mixture screw in all the way until it stopps,,,but ONLY JUST STOPS,,,,,DONT FORCE IT,,,then look at the top of the screw slot,,and call that 12 oclock,,,now turn the screw out to you three full turns going through 12oclock,,that means 12 to 12 is one turn.
then start the bike,,,finish your adjustments now by slowley turning the screw outwards until the engine starts to misfire,,,at this point turn the screw back in one half to three quarters of a turn.Now you have the mixture set roughly.
For fine tuning,, you need to use a monometer while turning the mixture screw
Best of luck...

The pilot air screws are sealed to prevent tampering. If access is necessary, the plugs can be removed. The Clymer manual, number 314-3, gives a detailed procedure, with pictures. Be careful! This requires skill with a drill in a small space, and it is possible to destroy a carburetor with poor technique.

Air/fuel adjustment screws are no longer accessible since about 1983. They are adjusted at the factory, and even dealers are subject to a $10,000 fine if they change the adjustment. On the other hand, consumers also take a risk and depending on what state you live in, you may get away with adjusting them yourself. The adjustment screw is usually capped with an aluminum plug and and is very difficult to remove, the carbs may need to be removed to even get at them to try to remove the plugs. Removal involves drilling a hole in the plug, and using a sheet metal screw driven into the drilled hole to pull the plug out. Be advised it is very easy to ruin your carb in the process.
