while moving a few months ago my vtx 1300c fell over (right side) so i orderd the parts (new handgrip and foot rest), installed them, changed the oil and filter and fired it up. at first it didnt start so i changed the plugs. now it starts and idles fine with no choke on but if i touch the throttle it bogs, chokes and stalls. if i have the choke on a little it runs fine, how do i correct the problem so i dont have to ride with the choke on and run the risk of fouling a plug. any assistace would be greatly appreciated.

where is the af screw

i have been searching and searching online to find out where it is but i cant find it i have the idle control knob but cant find the af screw.....i know i sound dumb but i am trying to teach myself.

thanks to all of you who are helping me i should be able to get it now. one more question though. being that nothing was changed other than it falling over would i need to adjust the af adustment or do you think it could be something else
the only thing i could think of is.....i moved from nc but didnt ride the bike out here in cali, then it fell over. i dont know i think i am just going to take it to the shop before i break something else.
