carb tuning

i need help for carb tuning on my 1996 ski-doo touring le 440. i was wondering how far the screw (that changes the air-fuel mixture), should be out from the carb (how many turns from tight).

For my 2004 MXZ 600 HO the shop manual say 1.5 turns out.
I set mine to 2 full turns out though and it still seems like it may be a bit lean based on the color of the plugs. You should look in the tech specs in the shop manual for your sled: they will list that in the technical specifications section. I found my shop manual online and I an guessing you can as well.

You need to test and tune. Turn the screws and drive it. Look at the plugs and adjust accordingly.
