First of all hello. I have been lurking here but this is my first post.

Is the fuel screw the allen head screw on the bottom left side(gear side)of the carb? I have been riding street bikes for the last 16 years so I have to re learn a few things with dirt bikes.

The alln head screw you are talking about is the carb drain.
The fuel screw is located on the cylinder side of the carb---it is in a small hole about 1/4 inch from the bottom of the fuel bowl. See page4-9and 4-10 in your owners manual figure 15 is the fuel screw----the fuel bowl is made with a hole in it to access the fuel screw.
