Honda XR50R carb tuning

How many turns does the screw need to be turned for a good idle? Do I need to put the choke on hlaf choke to set the idle?

Its a 01 Honda XR 50R.

You have two screws. One is the idle. It should be Philips. The other is a smaller. It's the air/fuel screw. That should be about 1-1 1/2 turns out from seated. And yes the stock 50s are finicky until properly tuned.

Welcome to MH btw

You should only need the choke on for a cold start. Once the bike is warmed up, you shouldn't have the choke on. So you shouldn't have the choke on or half on when adjusting your idle.
