SOURCE: setting float level on HSC40 Hitachi carburetors on 1986 Virago

I have a 1982 Virago 750 that I just did a carb rebuild to. To set the float levels I built a jig from wood that simulates the position of the carbs when mounted on the bike. This jig clamps into my bench vise. I created a fuel supply using a small funnel and a piece of fuel hose mounted above the level of the carbs.. After that all you need is a short length of transparent fuel hose to attach to the drain on the bottom of the float bowl to provide the visual indication of the float setting. Now you are ready to set up the float levels on your bench. This is way easier than trying to set them up in the bike.

Make sure that the jig is set up so that the carbs sit as level as possible across the pair and that they sit as close to the natural position in the bike in the lengthwise position when the bike is sitting level.

The process of setting up these floats can be very tedious, be patient. It may require that the float bowls be removed multiple times to get it correct (I replaced the philips head machine screws with allen head screws to make this easier). Printed instructions for the procedure look for a certain fuel level setting plus or minus 1mm. This kind of tolerance can be quite difficult to get when the only adjustment you have to work with is to bend the metal tang on the float assembly.

SOURCE: is there a float level setting for the r6

Connect a clear tube to the drainplug of each carb and secure them to side above the float chamber.

Make sure bike is on level ground and unscrew the drain screws about one turn or until you see the fuel rising up in the tube.

The fuel level should be between 11.5~12.5mm below the highest point of the float chamber line.

Always have a fire extinguisher handy when performing these tests

1996 750 katana suzuki how to set floats?


- Now days some carburetors are produced which are fixed and no adjustment is provided.The float is made up of whole plastic like material.
Some floats have the copper/metal notch for the adjustment of fuel level.
- Take the carburetor assembly out.
- Remove the fuel bowls.
- Place the carburetor assembly with the floats upward towards yourself.
- Float level gauge and active data list (taken from the workshop manual) is required to carry out the adjustment. But you can simply adjust the float level correctly without any gauge.
- Hold the carburetor assembly at your eye level in such a way that the carburetor No. 1 is in front of you. Behind is No. 2 carburetor, then behind is No. 3 and then the No. 4. Or we can say that the carburetor No. 1 hides the carburetors 2, 3, and 4.
- Examine carefully the floats of all the individual carburetors be parallel to the surface of the carburetor where the float bowl face is seated and tightened.
- Adjust the float level by bending the float notch towards the needle valve (to decrease the float level and to raise the float) or away from the needle valve to increase the float level (to lower the float).

Does the spring loaded screw on the carburetor bowl on the 15hp liquid cooled engine adjust the float level?


No. A metal float is adjusted by slightly bending the small metal tangs on the float that hold the retaining pin as it hangs from the main carburetor body . If you feel the need to adjust the level of the float, your normal setting is with the float "level" in relation to the lower carburetor body. That is in it's raised position when it has sealed the fuel inlet by pushing the float needle all the way into it's seat; thus shutting off fuel flow into the bowl.

I have a 2003 harley sportster When I Start it the over flow vent hose flows gas. What do you think the problem is? Thank you Tom


It sounds like your float level is just a bit high in the carburetor. Your bike is equipped with a vacuum operated petcock. When the engine is not running, there is no vacuum on the intake and therefore, not vacuum on the petcock. When there is no vacuum on the petcock, the fuel is turned off.

When you start the engine, vacuum is created and applied to the petcock turning on the fuel. If the float level is set too high or you have a piece of trash in the needle and seat in the carb, the float bowl will overfill and gasoline will run out of the overflow hose.

You need to take the carb off the engine, remove the float bowl, take the float and the needle out and clean out the needle and seat. Then check the float height. Now, this is an area where you need a manual. The float sets with the carb on a 15┬░ to 20┬░angle. With it on this angle, you set the height to 0.413-0.453" from the carburetor flange surface to the top of the float. I usually try to set the float at the lowest fuel level setting with would be the 0.453" setting.

Good Luck

It sounds like during the rebuild the float level some how was changed to a higher setting. There is a tab on the float that needs to be bent in order to change when the float valve actually closes. Seems your float valve adjustment is allowing the carb fuel level to be too high which will create the exact symptom that you described.
If the level is fine then there can be a small piece of debris in the float valve seat.
Also.. if the float itself has filled with fuel it can be too heavy to float and cause the float level position to remain low even when the carb is full not allowing the fuel supply to be shut off. If the new o-ring for the float valve was cut during installation it can also cause your current symptom.
At this point I just think that a float level adjustment is all that should be required.
with the float bowl screws loose the bowl should never overflow in a static condition. If it does the float level adjustment is off.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Gas problem


When A/c is turned on the idle up actuator is activated which is connected to the carburetor shaft which connects to the secondary throttle. If secondary throttle is adjusted to much so as the butterfly valve opens to wide more fuel will enter the engine. Check fuel float in the carburetor float chamber , if it is adjusted to high. Readjust for proper level, to do this invert the carburetor cover with the float connected, the float should be horizontal in position with regards to the cover of the carburetor. To high a float would cause fuel to seep in the carburetor chamber and into the engine.
