Hi.
     For the D14 clip on slot 3 some say 2 but mine runs best in slot 3 and turn the air screw out 1/2 turn anti clockwise from fully screwed in. The manual says 1¹⁄² turns out but I find about 1/2 turn is a better starting point, I think that's something to do with modern fuel. Just tweak it for the best idle coupled with the least jerking on over run.
Mike.

There should be about a thousand previous posts on this topic ** Please log in to view **  all proving, if nothing else, that there is no definitive answer other than trial and error. BSA also cover the subject quite comprehensively in the Workshop Manual available to you in the Members' Area. Good luck. Nice shiny new carb 🙂
