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...

I hav a 2000 Kawasaki kdx 200 and it is leaking gas out of all the hoses on the carburetor after I ride it for longer than 15 minutes

Either the fuel lines are cracked or the float is sticking in the carb. Either one are very simple fixes. The float being the hardest. Start by replacing the fuel lines, (if you have not done this on this bike its time anyway.) if this doesn't work check the float sticking in the carb. Let me know what you find. Thanks!

I need to know how to adjust the float on my cvk32 carb

float level is usually per bike. you can try to start at 16mm give or take 1mm this is the setting for a 1989 kdx 200/220. it is measured from the bottom of float to the mating surface just touching needle. the best way is a service manual or owners manual should tell you. You can play with them a little by changing the measurements you can richen or lean the fuel a little, example 18mm would be leaner, and 14 would be richer.

1996 kdx 200, starts good, boggs out and shuts off while riding like it is running out of gas. any ideas?

my 1998 kdx 200 had the same problem last week. I know exactly what the problem is. My air filter was so clogged with dirt,oil,gunk, that there was absolutely no air or very little mixing with the fuel that it just refused to run. I fouled 3 plugs trying to make it back to campground. I also had black gunk just a dripping from my exhaust which has never happened before, but since it wasnt getting any air it was running so rich. At first i thought that i got water in my carb or fuel lines somehow,cause we were going through some nasty deep puddles. when i got to camp and removed my seat and saw my air cleaner i knew exactly what the problem was. I cleaned out the air cleaner and she ran again...but just like you stated, on the trail my bike acted like i was running out of fuel and just stalled. wish it wasnt when i was doing about 35 but ya know how it goes...i let my bike sit for 5 min, cause wouldnt immediately restart, then it would start. I would make it another 500 yards and stall again. confused i switched tank to reserve, still had plenty of fuel but i was stumped. then eventually i would foul a plug but i always carry 3 plugs even though i make it 2 seasons on 1 im 99% sure thats your problem....

The bike wont start up. it has a spark and has good compresion. what could it be.

It could be timing or fuel.Your next move is to make sure your getting gas.try to start bike with throttle wide open.Stop and remove spark plug,is it wet,if yes your getting fuel.If dry your not.If dry your next move is to remove fuel line from carb,while removed turn on gas valve and see if gas flows.if this is good then there is no problem with a tank or fuel valve blockage.Now you must remove carb and diassemble(carefully)as not to loose springs and float valve assembly.remove float bowl screws on bottom of carband slowly drop bowl down away from carb base.check for dirt in bowl.make sure floats move freely.what I am getting at here is if floats are stuck in up position this keeps gas from getting to motor.If you want to disassemble floats to get to needle valve you need to carefully remove pin holding floats in place lower floats paying attention to needle thats attached to float base.there is a spring or clip that holds this in place so take a close look before you take apart,because it must go back togather the same exact way it came apart all you need is a grain of sand inside needle valve for the float to stick and no fuel will get through.The reason i am telling you all this is because this is a common problem when bikes sit over winter and get sediment in bottom of gas tank.Good luck and let me know how you make out....Brian

My 98 kdx 200 misses when getting into high revs, so it doesnt get to high revs at all, just misses and splutters, even when you in neutral and hold the throttle open just doesnt get to that constant revs,...

Please do not run this bike again... take it to a QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL and have him clean and set the carburetor!!. Change the transmission oil also. Make sure the exhaust is clean and dry.. UNBURNT fuel in the exhaust is inviting a fire/explosion!!

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.
