Carburater adjustment only affects idle mixture. If you need to adjust the mixture when it's under power, you'll need to use an exhaust gas analyzer and change the jets and/or metering rods.

What is the carburetor adjustment for 1984 Honda 200s 3 wheeler?

The idle speed screw is on the right side of the carburetor, just above the carburetor bowl (the lower part of the carburetor). Turning this screw clockwise will raise the idle speed. Turning it the other way will lower the idle speed, which is supposed to be close to 1400 RPMs. The other screw, or the air screw, should be turned in as far as it will go, then loosen it two and a half turn. If the engine runs well with this, then nothing more needs to be done. You can turn the last mentioned screw a bit more, clockwise, to adjust the air mixture. Make sure that the carburetor is clean.
