Air/Fuel setting before or after Carby Sync?

Hi Members

Just a simple question that I am having trouble solving. On my 1975 GL1000, do I set the air/fuel mixture screws before or after the carburetor synchronization. Or doesn't it matter?

Before.
Mixture affects power (obviously) which affects balance.
