When looking at the carb from the right hand side of the bike (foot brake side) I see two screws. Which one is the idle screw? The small one in the top right corner or the small screw in the bottom left corner? If anyone knows I would appreciate the heads up. Waiting on my manual from performance motorsports so not sure right now. Thanks in advance for the help.

right on. Thanks. Do you know what the screws on the right hand side are for? I'm assuming on is for the amount of air intake. Do you know what those 2 screws on the right hand side are for?
