Yes. They seal the threads etc to stop air being sucked in and messing up the idle mixture.

What is the float height for 1987 vt 1100 honda


float heights are not usually needed to be adjusted, the float valve will have a rubber tip, so it wont wear and change the float height. if flooding is a problem, new float valves may be necessary, but more likely the fuel tap needs a kit

Problem with starting my bike


Sticking floats or worn float valve needles or incorrect float height, tap float bowls to see it overflow stops (sticky float), remove and clean float bowls and fuel inlet passage with carb cleaner and compressed air, check float valve for wear to the rubber tip. Reset float height by slightly bending the metal tab on the float to adjust the closing height of the valve measure from the carb bowl mating surface to the top of the float when fitted then re adjust 1mm at a time higher untill fuel doesnt over flow.

If Seat adjustment is possible in 2011cbunicorn


Your bike has a mono shock. It does have adjustments but it is for ride stiffness not necessarily ride height. But adjusting the rear shock will lower and or raise the seat a small amount. But at the lowest setting the seat height is still 792mm or 31.2 inchs. You may find a shorter shock but it would have to be from a parts search to match.

Hi (.honda cb 400-4) float posts damaged on original carbs.so replacements stripped & cleaned out i also fitted new jets adjusted float heights.to 21mm or 22mm (miss informed by a haynes manual).valve...


Were the jets the same size? Just because the numbers were the same does not assure you that someone has not used a jet drill to enlarge them. Pull the low speed jets and compare them with the old ones, using a wire gauge or set of number drills.

Need to know the flote height for a 1968 honda motorcycle 350


Hi! I presume you have a Kei Shein carburettor set up? if so there really isnt a float height as such, if you are experiencing flooding or fuel spewing out of the rear aperture it is more likely the float needle/valve is either worn or has foreign matter stopping it from shutting out the fuel supply.
When you take the float bowl off and look at the float you'll see at the end under a tang a tiny spring around the tang which is attached to the float needle careful removal will reveal all for servicing.
O.K. penny dropped? do you mean Needle Jet? if so try middle to start and check plug colour after good run, remember raising richens the mixture lowering weakens. Trial & error I'm afraid as mileage, wear and fuel quality all determine final result?
Good luck!
