Question about 1981 kawasaki KZ 1300 A3
Those arent ajustment screws as the screws are in front of the float bowels in the center of each carb and they only trun a quarter turn unless the locks have been removed they'll keep turning with the blows off and they are likly to be dirty. Remove and wash out with carb cleaner and compressed air as all the other jets do too. The ones in the air horns too. Air screws are out 1 1/2 turns if the motor is in good shape' The screws in the sides are plugs that let you hook up your vacume gauges to sync the carbs. with all the vacume matched up then adjust the air jets then re sync the air then resync till any change makes it worse then ride it to see what you got their more senitive with the idle set low and it keeps to have a strong fan on the motor as sitting still with the motor out of tune till you get it right makes a lot of heat. When its right the sync gauges are on the same numbers and you hit the gas just some they all move together to the same number and hold RPM's just fine staying on the same numbers as if it won't do it the exhaust valves may be too tightand as it heats up everything changes and if you ride it it ca smooth out as the temp comes down with speed and the lash will open a little. Too tight and it changes too much to keep the tune.
