The screw is located in the same spot. Tightening it in makes it leaner, and vice-versa. It should run well somewhere between 1 & 2 turns out. Worry first about how the bike runs, not whether the exhaust pops. If you think you have the adjustment right, and it still pops, you can try another quarter turn rich and see if that clears it up, and maybe another after that, but not much more, as you will end up with a too-rich idle if you go too far.

Exhaust backfire can also be caused by an air leak at the midpipe clamp, if you have one, or a slip joint in the same place, or a leak at the head, so check that if you have a persistant pop after you set the mixture right. This link may help:
