I have stock pipes and stock airbox.
Then jetting should be 137.5 mains with 42.5 pilots with the '79 carbs. Trying to find the slide needles is like looking for a needle in a stack of needles, so you'll probably have to stick with what you've got. It's a good idea to take the slides apart (although you'll need some deep reach snap ring pliers to do the deed) to make sure the clips are in the middle slot and that they're properly assembled. Might check the needles for markings too - if there are any they should read 5GZ6.
I think I have a loose screw behind the handlebars.

'79 XS11 Standard, Jardine 4/1, Dyna DC1-1 Coils, 145 mains, 45 pilots, plastic floats - 25.7mm, XV920 fuel valves, inline fuel filters, speed bleeders, Mikes XS pods, spade-type fuse block, fork brace, progressive fork springs/shocks, manual petcocks, 750 FD, Venture cam chain tensioner, SS brake lines
