first get the bike running, turn the idle adjustment up enough to keep it running. start with the air/fuel screw, 1 1/4 turn out. adjust the screw which ever way increases the idle 1/4 turn at a time, wait 10 seconds after every 1/4 turn to allow the engine speed to adjust. As the idle goes up you can use the idle screw to keep it in its normal range. at some point, the idle will start to come back down, this is when you want to start going the other way. idealy you want it set in the middle of the range of when it stopped increasing and when it started to decrease. If you are not able to reach this happy medium within the normal adjustment range, you will need to put the proper pilot jet in and start the process again. This should get you up and running, if it is a generic carb you may will have to adjust the jetting to get the bike performing its best after that, but thats another chapter.

Testimonial: "managed to get it running now as i now have a propper top head gasket ,lol still trying to find the propper idle setting ,lol tweek turn + hope , andz"
The air/fuel screws won't have any effect on the top end. That would be governed by the main jet. Did you install the Boyseen Reeds? If this is a new addition it could be the problem. Another thing could be the fuel level in the carburetor bowl. When you tore down the carb it is possible the float got out of adjustment. You could drop the bowl and see if the fuel level is correct. If not, bend the tab on the float to adjust it.
