Assuming you mean the pilot screws, the 38s on my 98 ZL500 are set at 1 turn out from lightly seated. Totally different motor though.
Just curious, why are you needing to adjust them?

You can purchase a complete service manual for around 10 bucks online. Worth it if you are going to be doing all your own repairs.

Baseline is one turn out from lightly seated. Adjust your idle so it's around 1800 RPM.

There is a great section here called the How too!
You need to clean the carbs first and the pilot jet (up the tube)
Then stc them!
Start with the carbs off and hold the throtle wide open and adjust the cable tension (on top ) till the slide is flush with the top of the throat.
Then with an 1/8" drill bit losen or tighten the idle screw until there is just a little drag on the bit. OK now start the sled and if idle is too high or low you can raise or lower each the same number of turns!
Now get the idle as low as possible, then turn Out the idle mixtur screw (the little one!) utill the rpm is as high as possible, now turn the idle to where you want it!
