These screws all tend to look alike, so you'll be looking for probably a small brass screw, flat screwdriver head. There should be one for each carb. The bikes will come from the factory with a lead plug over the air adjustment screw - just so you can't go messing around with the factory emission specs. So if you can't see the screw itself, the plug may still be in there. Look for a small plug (probably about 6mm wide, small hole in the middle) - light drill, easy, easy, easy so you don't hit the screw - and then you should be able to pop it right out.

Well here is what happen,the first owner put v/h pipes on and though he had to adjust the carb that is what he did,now my brother bought the bike and it has a little hesitation only on part throttle other then that it's good ,he turned it in all the way and backed it out two and a half turns when he put the v/h on , I was thinking if he left the carb alone it would have been fine.
When I put the v/h on my 750 I did no adjustments and it ran perfect,should we put it back the way it was or what?

Some folks are running V&H and may have a better idea of the proper adjustment (I played around with stuff but eventually returned to OEM). On the 750, the stock turn out of the air/fuel mix screw is 1 and 3/8ths turns. So find out what stock turn-out is on the 1500 and start with that - your bro may have taken it out too much, creating a richer mixture that is warranted. ANything else change with the isntallation of the V&H, otehr than that?
