Question Could this be one of the mixture screws?

Whats up everybody. Im a new rider who recently bought a 2003 ninja 250. I have ridden lots of cruisers but this is my first street bike so I bought something small so I wouldnt kill myself lol. Anyway, I am almost mechanically retarded, but I go real interested in the mechanics of my bike and wanted to start learning about it myself.

Just in the last 2 weeks I was able to read and completely torn down my bike, clean the carbs, change the oil and oil filter, and reroute some hoses that were acting up. I was able to get it all back together, but since I have, I have noticed misfiring from the exhausts when at high rpms when its not moving. And also after I let off the throttle it drops to about 3000 rpms then takes a couple seconds to get back down to idle range. I have a feeling its the idle mixture screws from what I was reading, but any help would be appreciated. I have a clymers manual and a manual from cyclepedia and have also printed out a lot from the ninja 250 wiki. Thanks Guys

Info about bike
Year:2003
Mileage: 5140

Duplicate questions, please see this thread : https://www.250r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=6177
to respond and see answers already given.

I have come to terms with the possibility of dying while riding, life has a 100% death rate. I would rather live having fun and end up dead in a motorcycle crash than never do anything fun because it's dangerous and I might get killed. No one makes it out alive anyway. - From a friend on another forum, used with his permission.
