I have my fuel screw out 2 1/4 turns , is this to much ?? I dont want it to fall out :) . It runs great at this setting. The temp here is only high 40's and going up fast so ill be turning it back in soon!!

It will be fine,
When you get to about 3 or 4 turns out, you can start to worry about it falling out :)

I run mine at 2 and 1/4 turns but I have the awesome zipty quick adjustable fuel screw. This is a must have for all 4 strokes in my opinion. The best investment I ever made. You can reach down anytime you want and adjust to the conditions of the day you are riding. I think they have them at www.rockymontainatv.com
