Dispute this biotch!
From Factory pro on TUNING CVK CARB!!!
Again turning them OUT richen the damn low speed pilot circuit! CVK 36 and 40s have the pilot screw FORWARD of the float bowl.

According to this diagram...that's your idle screw. Idle screw controls air/fuel ratio at idle. Your jet controls fuel flow rate, hence why Keihin sells alternative jets with ALL of their tuning kits. Got that right from their NA site. Perhaps I shall look at the Japanese site as well...but I don't speak nor read Japanese so....
Now, if you look closely, the reason they are saying it "richens" the mix, is both air and fuel are traveling down the passageway in the carb body. Look where the air inlet is. Air travels past the pilot jet, where it picks up fuel vapor, and this all passes out the tiny hole in the carb that controls your idle.
I see what you are saying now.

Pilot Air Jet (not shown) ~ Follow that boss like air tunnel from the air cleaner side to the 'pilot mixture screw.'
Did I say fuel is the engine side? So turn the 'pilot air screw' in and no air comes out the tunnel = Rich.
Did I say air on the air cleaner side is going to be the screw that closes the atomization like the engine side? = Rich.
If your nose is not clogged, I set a vacuum cleaner over your two openings, will I suck air out of both or one side of your nose? If I WOT the air sucking for all its worth, we do what? The one orifice closes? How can you shutdown an open hole without a spider's trapdoor there.
You bring in some jacknose netshit printed up what? You want me to believe anything this guy says?: "Pilot fuel mixture screw settings, float level and pilot jet size also affect high-rpm, 0 to 1/8 throttle maneuvers." The main is part of idle and starting. The low speeds blend in at such a linear move, you can't even tell that the whole system is being sucked out in proportion, from the start of that 1 degree move to WOT are you smoking, fella?
Dude, you bring in shit to quote, you can't walk it. Even that abstract has holes (pun intended) like swiss cheeze IS! 0 to 1/8th my ass crack is so linear too, ya think?!

Goddamit! I smell danish!!
Tell me where! I WILL possess the danish!!

I said I see what he is saying....
There is no air screw per-say. It is an inlet that grabs fuel on the way by from the pilot jet. It's an air jet. You control fuel rate with the pilot jet. You control the entire mix with the idle mix screw.
Or so it appears in the pic I used there...looking at the flow channels in that there carb body.
I know what you are saying...
When you open the throttle, it pretty much cancels out this "jet". Same principle some have explained here with the power commander to eliminate the backfire on decel by richening up the 0 throttle range at high RPM. The same is what he is saying with that screw...or so I understand anyways...

Lets try this one more time The penultimate number is that liquid filled to the brim no matter how many rocks in the glass vs. water = AFR.
The penultimate number that enters the cylinder chamber is 14.7 minus a ratio say, so it does not confuse you. Now, we toss a rock into the glass and that displaces what was once water (air) so now that rock takes up a ratio.
The 14.7 pressure did not change. It's going to compress the water and rock together. As if you could compress the water and rock in the glass, go ahead, I'll watch. So, did you destroy or create 14.7 is there is no change, you grasp that concept.
Now, add an air screw in the mix. I want air to tumble into the gas and break it up. I do not want a solid steam out the end of my penisay If I have to use nature for the subject, hello?
Now that you have that image, we piss thru a straw with holes all up that tube. Did I disrupt the solid stream? Yes. So if I could get someone to suck on that straw, change direction meaning, we'd catch air in those straw holes as someone be drinking the acid flow out the bladder, or petcock say
We turn the screw out, we add more air that moves faster into the straw holes, rather than a heavy liquid stream trying to squeeze thru a tiny hole. So the air wins being sucked out faster/sooner than gas entering the [closing pressure] of 14.7.
Notice the new fuel to air ratio a screw makes. You can't measure it, but you sure can see it move, if you used an ohm meter hooked up to the, 'stator rotor movement,' meaning, out those wires if you bumped it under 1 degree. Fascinating to watch. After all, WATTS the difference in either movement?

It's not an air screw it's a mixture screw.
Screwing the mixture screw out doesn't add more air moving faster into the straw holes, mixing with your piss, undoing the screw allows more air/fuel mixture to be drawn past the taper into the cylinder.
More air/fuel mixture means the mixture is richer.
No glass, no rocks, no water, no straw, piss acid or anything else.

So when I run the air screws in, there is more gas that displaced what that screw would have with air. If opened at who cares the position, right?; It will offset the AFR from start to WOT down the salt flats is the overall tune, correct? And now you read your spark plug: chop the engine spark iwith a WOT, look down the porcelain with the proper toolookey there!
The question is, who is displacing whom, we turn something hooked up to a tunnel of air? Am I mixing air in the throttle body? Yes. There is nothing going thru those tunnels but air. So too is the air hole closer to the intake valve. So the fuel is going to spittle back into the throttle plate and wait for the next round. That says the air screw is going to enter before the fuel and equalize that close to the penultimate. That tiny spit out the close is just that. Balanced is the constant. OfF is the AFR and that ratio by that screw turn.
Make sense doughnuts to danishes about air and calling it an air screw? You could say we stole the 'mixture' screw off the carb. Stuck it on this new animal. We now use it for engine balance like we should have when the first inline with 4 carbs came on line. Same as the 1's and 0 so late in the game.

There is fuel coming out of this needle. The pilot jet feeds out at this point in the bore...or so I can clearly see in the above referenced image I posted. Without the carb body in my hand, I can't really say otherwise, but the cast-in channels show this to be the case here.
This supports the "richer" mix when it's backed out. It is adding more fuel. Air is also passing via this as well, hence "mixture". The air jet is open at the intake of the bore, no needle there.
Now, the pilot jet looks as tho it can also go another direction in there as well. Again, without the carb in my hand, I can't be certain, but I do see, with this pic, what is being said. Whether or not that pilot jet is feeding another passageway....seems it's going multiple paths there. Either way, it's clear fuel is passing with air via the 1 passageway anyways, as the air jet path passes right thru the pilot jet hole.
