09 YZ450F Accelerator Pump Adj Screw?

I just bought this bike a few weeks ago and i just dialed in all of my jets and i have a some bog in quick acceleration and i want to check my AP timing and i see that everyone talks about the AP adjustment screw and even in my manual they show how to check it. BUT for the life of me, i dont see / cant find my adj screw. I attached some pics hoping someone can help this blind bastard locate this screw.

P.S- this is a Keihin Carb if that matters at all

If this is an '09, why is the frame next to the chain steel?

I dont know, I bought it off craigslist, this is my first Yamaha and I was told it was an 09, i wouldnt know how to tell if it was or not, nor would i have second guessed it either really??? And when you say frame next to chain steel, i have no idea what you are talking about, but you now have me wondering what the heck is going on????

So i guess i have two questions,

1. How can i tell what year this bike is?

2. Where is my AP adj screw? Or do i not have one?

Look at the VIN number. What is the tenth character?

Post a picture of the bike?

I am sorry, i dont know what i was thinking. This bike is an 03', i dont know why i was thinking an 09'. I will go and try to search "the correct" threads now for my bog issue. Sorry for wasting your time.
