Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Adjusted float on carbon. Now gas stopped leaking but doesn't idle without choke. Back fires
Posted by Anonymous on
How did you set the float level. Sounds like you did not get the float adjustment set correctly. It is very particular and it is critical for proper running etc etc. Carb has to be set on the throat and then tilted between 15 to 20 degrees to set the float level or it will be wrong. Greater than 20 degrees will collapse thew pin return spring, less than 15 will not set float properly on needle. Then setting must be 0.413 to 0.453 inches.

Through the plug you look through to check the primary chain tension. About a 2" opening near the top center of the primary cover. This is the same as all Sportsters.

If the bike has been allowed to sit for a while, the fuel may have evaporated in the float bowl. When this happens, the jets get stopped up with the gummy residue that is left behind. You may need to go through the carb and clean the slow jet and the main jet. While you're there, it would be advisable to install a new set of intake gaskets.

i agree with you. i had the same thing happen to me varnish on float caused it to stick in the down position when i turned the gas on it would flood out i had to change my oil to. did you stablize it if not get the carb. cleaned and make sure you fog the cylinders and add fuel stablizer to gas dont run it empty and think its good enough its not.
