Reset fuel/air screws

I recently degoated my 750 and need to know how to adjust fuel/air mix screws. I saw it was 2 1/4 or 2 1/2 turns but is that from factory or turning them all the way in and starting over? If anyone can tell me how to reset them from turning them all the way in and backing back out it would be helpful. The carbs have not been rejetted.

Thanks

I think what you are asking is how to set them 2 1/4 or 2 1/2 turns out. You screw them all the way in carefully til they bottom out but not tight, as it could damage them. Then you turn them out from bottomed out counting turns, to the setting you want them at.

Since the mountains it's been running strangely. So yesterday I reset mine.
1 3/4 turns of the screws and 4 Oz of Seafoam in a full tank.
This baby is purrrrrrring like a kitten and the decel popping has virtually gone away without doing anything else.
