Those arent ajustment screws as the screws are in front of the float bowels in the center of each carb and they only trun a quarter turn unless the locks have been removed they'll keep turning with the blows off and they are likly to be dirty. Remove and wash out with carb cleaner and compressed air as all the other jets do too. The ones in the air horns too. Air screws are out 1 1/2 turns if the motor is in good shape' The screws in the sides are plugs that let you hook up your vacume gauges to sync the carbs. with all the vacume matched up then adjust the air jets then re sync the air then resync till any change makes it worse then ride it to see what you got their more senitive with the idle set low and it keeps to have a strong fan on the motor as sitting still with the motor out of tune till you get it right makes a lot of heat. When its right the sync gauges are on the same numbers and you hit the gas just some they all move together to the same number and hold RPM's just fine staying on the same numbers as if it won't do it the exhaust valves may be too tightand as it heats up everything changes and if you ride it it ca smooth out as the temp comes down with speed and the lash will open a little. Too tight and it changes too much to keep the tune.

How do I adjust the float on my 2000 big bear carb...Carb is a mikuni 5fua L2


remove the carb, take off the bottom float bowl on the carb. Then while holding the carb upside down, you want to set the floats level. You will have to bend the little tab on the float needle to do so.

Hi, Andrew take the carb apart and use a magnifying glass if necessary on the needle and seat it nay have contamination or defect from Mikuni otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

Mikuni ucal carburetor diagrams


Many things can cause this;
check the following.

1. trash(including rust in the tank if metal) in the tank/carb. If the carb set for more than 6 months it may need the fuel system cleaned out(includes the carb). Putting a filter in the system will not take care of the rust problem in most cases. If the tank is metal and has rust it will need a tank liner kit like the brand "kreem" or the equivalent.
2. the needle/seat combination and/or float is incorrectly set or bad causing that fuel level to get high in the bowl. Check the float height according to the manual or replace the float/needle/seat.
3. bad seat o ring if it has one and also a petcock that does not shut off. If you can jog the seat around in the carb, then the o ring is probably bad. If you disconnect the fuel line from the carb and gas still comes out, the petcock is most likely bad or it has trash in it.

I have a 44mm mikuni carb. it gets fuel to the carb but it floods and will not get gas to the cylinder at all


A couple of possibilities- - Float is corroded and not floating - Valve either gummed up or worn and stuck - Float level not properly set

Just need the height setting for the floats the


YOU CAN ADJUST FLOATS WITHOUT SPECIAL TOOLS. ALL YOU NEED IS A FOOT LONG PIECE OF CLEAR TUBING, SIZED TO FIT THE BOWL DRAIN. SET FLOATS AS CLOSE TO WHAT THEY WERE WHEN YOU REPLACED IT. INSTALL THE BOWL AND PUT THE TUBE ON THE DRAIN. OPEN THE BOWL DRAIN SCREW WHILE HOLDING THE TUBE UP BESIDE THE CARB. WHEN YOU GET THE TUBE BESIDE THE CARB ASSY., THE GAS IN THE TUBE SHOWS YOU THE EXACT LEVEL OF FUEL IN THE BOWL. FROM THIS YOU CAN MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS NECESSARY FOR CORRECT LEVEL. THE LEVEL SHOULD BE RIGHT BELOW THE PLANE WHERE THE BOWL MEETS THE CARB BASE.

Float setting for BS34ss carb


I have a set my float to 22.0 +- 1.0 for a Mikuni carb.
To set floats, drain the carbs, pull the carbs from the bike invert and remove float bowl.
With the carb inverted, take off the float bowls. Take off the gasket. Use a vernier caliper or an accurate device to measure from the carb body to the top of the float block.
Here is are a couple of good sites about carbs and such.
