Do you mean the one which is directed to the other side of the carb and has a black knob? That's the idle adjust (it raises/lowers the throttle valve).

That screw is for the adjustment of accelerator pump timing. The '01 manual doesn't cover it at all, really. Download an '03 manual here:

Look at the procedure on page 4-19 and use that as a guide. Then review this thread:
