If you lift he floater you must have a clearance of 2mm on the top of the inner side of your carburator so it wont leak.

What is the float height for 1987 vt 1100 honda


float heights are not usually needed to be adjusted, the float valve will have a rubber tip, so it wont wear and change the float height. if flooding is a problem, new float valves may be necessary, but more likely the fuel tap needs a kit
