idle adjuster

Do I turn the idle adjust screw on the carb towards the front of the carb or towards the rear of the carb to increase the idle RPM.

Also do I make the adjustments while the bike is running?

Do it while it's running so you can tell in real time what's happening. I can't really say what way you turn it to speed it up or slow it down. Just turn it one way or another and see what happens.

Does it take a lot of adjustment to see a change?

Can't really say. I've only messed with mine once. You just have to start the bike and start slowly turning the screw. To the best of my recollection, it's not going to die or rev out of control if you turn it 1/2 turn or so. It's pretty "coarse."
