I will be the first to tell you that is not a stupid question. I too was wondering what all the hype about this Kouba thing was. I for one haven't had any of the problems associated with needing one after finding the correct jetting. That itself made a HUGE difference. I know the airscrew can make subtle changes for some problems, but I've never messed with it. Probably due to a lack of knowledge on my part. Who knows, maybe I just THINK my bike is jetted right. Anyway, I don't think any question in TT is a dumb one. That's why we all communicate in here.

In flatter country, you probably don't have to adjust that little sucker too often.

Used to be I didn't get online for months at a time now I gotta check out all the dialogue, just about every other day or so.

presuming you've done the BK or Taffy mod first you will start to get valid results.
the idea is to see which gives you the sharpest response. if you genuinly feel you need two full turns the chances are that you have a slightly lean low speed mixture.
this can be caused by the PC (pilot circuit) ratio of the PJ/PAJ being out. lean =too small PJ or too large PAJ. it's been tested by me that the vast majority are rich here so we can say that it's too large PJ/too small PAJ.
the last one to effect this lean condition is the needle. if this is lean you're more likely to stall or find it hard to start even.
if and when you've got your low speed jetting right you should come back to 1 1/2 turns out (from closed).
