Assuming XR650L CV carb, its a fuel screw, and in is leaner, out is richer.

If you have the correct size pilot jet, the adjustment should be 2-3 turns out from lightly seated (closed).

More than that, you need a bigger pilot.

Turn the screw in until the idle changes, then count your turns out until the idle changes again. Go half way. You should be near 2 to 2 1/2 turns out from were the screw lightly seats or your jetting is likely wrong.:applause:
