Default base line mixture setting for low speed needle

I have a ninja and the needle settings are not in the manual. I alwasy figured, flush with the needle housing. But i have read on several sites recently that good base line mixture settings are 2 to 3 turns out on the high speed needle (which i know is correct). well i have read twice that a good baseling setting for the lsn is one turn out from closed. does this sound correct?

one turn out sounds way to lean.
Flush with the needle housing is right in the ballpark. One turn out from flush should be nice and blubbery rich
3 turns out on the high speed for mine was nice and rich.

That is why its a good idea to check the carb settings when you take it out the box the first time
