SOURCE: suzuki gs550l flot height
You may have already done this. I'm assuming you have the original BS32SS Mikuni constant velocity (CV) carbs. They were used on 80-82 models. With the fuel bowl and float chamber gasket off, set floats to 21.4 - 23.4 mm (0.84-0.92 in.) If the float chamber gasket is still on the carb, reduce the measurement by approximately 1mm. As a side note, I went to an auto parts store to buy a gauge to set mine - they didn't sell them individually. Parts man told me to walk across the street to a car repair shop that had bought several carb kits from him. Each carb kit has the L-shaped gauge with it. I checked with repair shop and they gave me one for free. For simplicity's sake, I set mine to 22 mm (without the gasket in place) on all 4 carbs. Hope this helps someone.
