The only carb adjustment that means a hill of beans besides the idle screw is the e-clip notch setting on the needle. From what I read here the average setting it the second notch from the top.

Also, for the first week or so I recommend taking a screwdriver and a socket and wrench for the head bolts and a socket for the intake and exaust manifolds with you on your rides. Befor and after each ride make sure the screws, nuts, and bolts aren't vibrating loose. Pay particular attention to both manifolds. The cheap stock gaskets tend to blow out on both sides so it may be a good idea to go ahead and order some new ones now or make some.
