SOURCE: I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET THE FLOAT ON 1995 KDX

It gotta close the valve when the bowl is full. You can test by replacing the bowl in place and connecting the gas, if it does not overflow its good, it gotta let the gas enter the bowl till full and it will be correct. Its not a precision settings, just try and see...

SOURCE: Float spring on tecumseh Carb.

Ok, that pin is the needle valve. It should move freely, and the spring should attach it to the float. When the carburetor bowl is full, the float pushes that pin up to shut off the gas flowing into it. Otherwise, it would continue to dump fuel into it until it overflows, and you would have gas all over. The engine draws gas through the jet in the bottom of sump that you see sticking into the bottom of the bowl(this likes to get plugged up and keep your engine from running) The spring just kind of sits in there so that if the float moves, it will pull down the pin as it moves.

Its not a problem, I need to know if there is another way to set/measure the float hights without the need of the speacial Kawasaki tool for doing so? I understand the hieght should be set at around 15mm...


Here is the fallback method that has always worked for me: have the float arms (that part of the float which attaches the floats to the hinge) parallel to the float bowl gasket surface just as the float valve contacts the float - without depressing the spring loaded tip on the valve. Frankly, I have used float gauge maybe once in my life - this method is much faster and easier.

We have an 1985 kdx 200 2 stroke and where do the floats need to be set at it floods itself everytime you try to start it


the floats may be damaged
try to level the floats with the base of the top part of the carby and see how you go .
you may have to try a few times until you get it right .
Check your needle point too as it may be stuck as well .

KDX200 carb float set up. Hi I have gas coming


If you have gas coming out of the overflow tube, you need to make sure the float valve is shutting the gas off properly. The float height would have to be awfully high to cause gas to come out the overflow. You might be able to do it on the bike but it's a lot easier to do off the bike. Pull out the float valve and inspect the tip. Make sure it is smooth with no evident nicks or deep grooves.
