With the needle in place and the yellow plastic retainer locked into place, push your finger against the pointy end of the needle. Does the needle have a slight give to it where it is being depressed against the spring? Also, can you wiggle the needle back and forth slightly? If you cannot do these things and, hence, the needle is rigid, then the "tit" needs clipped.

Then you are okay. If you end up moving the clip to a position further from the blunt end, this might cause the needle to not move freely and you would have to clip the "tit".

Well, adjusting just the A/F screw is not enough. You need to go through the rejetting/tuning process outlined in the thread here on the Cafe titled something like "carb, what affects what".
