adjusting float height (SOLVED)

PostAuthor: LasseP » Thu Jun 06, 2019 1:31 am

Previously read a post about adjusting float height, but can't find it anymore. It was around 2016 that I read it. Can't get the search function started either, so wondering if anyone can help me find it. This applies to mikuni in a 1998 model year

Adjust to 23mm from the gasket base, with gasket removed, to the rounded top of the float with the carbs turned upside down. Make sure to check both sides of the float as they can be different.
