SOURCE: Carbies willn't set float level,right floods,left sets to low

I don't know if its any help but I've fixed my Honda with similar problem. It turns out I reassembled the rich carbys air cut off valve incorrectly. Have you checked yours? I'm wondering if the cut off valves somehow affect the other parts of the carbys. Mine is running sweet now.

SOURCE: I need to reset the float levels in my carbys to

You describe a problem with either the float or the float-needle and seat. If the needle is not seating then the gas flows past it. If the float has a pin-hole leak, then it will fill with gas and sink.
On some bikes you can remove the carb bowl without removing the carbs. If so, slide the hinge pin holding the float to one side and remove. The float will drop straight down. Catch the needle since it is now loose. Unscrew the needle seat with a socket.
Clean all metal parts in carburator cleaner...do not get carb cleaner on any rubber part. Shake the float and listen for gas inside or see if it floats in water.
Test the needle seal in the seat by blowing gently thru seat. Needle must seat completly with very little pressure holding the needle in the seat.
Re-assemble with new bowl gasket if damaged. A carb rebuild kit ($35) might be available for 1973 carb and contains all new parts instead of cleaning. Kit might even contain new float and float adjust guide.
Avoid adjusting float level if re-using the old float. If using new float, temporarily install old and measure distance to carb body. Install new and match this measuremnt. Bend tang to adjust.

Good luck,
Techjoel

1984. Why does it run fine during cold weather and sputter when it is warm and I punch the gas pedal?


could be low float level, low pump pressure/supply
blocked fuel filter
when cold the engine is running on choke setting which draws more fuel from the carby
when it is warm the choke is off and if you have a flat spot ( (sputter) , that indicates a lack of fuel or maybe a bad accelerator pump or power valve
if the carby is a holley then replace the power valve and overhaul the accelerator pump.

What does hesitation when reving mean?


If carburetted it sounds like either a low fuel level in the carb ie float setting incorrect or plugged fuel filter or kinked line or miadjusted or worn accelerator pump.

I have a 1983 280 ZX turbo, there is a slight hesitation when accelerating. What can cause this?


if this is a carby engine then the hesitation can be from a faulty power valve in the carby (Carby overhaul) or incorrect timing . It could be an indication that the turbo is not spooling up quickly enough to produce the air required on acceleration Check for any split/loose vacuum hoses that are altering the mixture

if it has a carby ( you didn't bother to mention carby or EFI), have the carby overhauled as from your description, the accelerator and power sections of the carby are not working, Blocked jets or low float levels
if it is EFI have the fault codes read to check for MAF/VAF sensors and/ or heated oxygen sensor problems
your description indicates that the engine is not getting excess fuel to provide engine rpm acceleration be it either carby or electronic system

My 1991 suzuki gsf400 has erratic idling. also is hard to start.


This could be almost anything, probably minor. Good premium unleaded fuel, fresh/clean and gapped plugs, fuel filters clean,. Carbies clean and jets good, correct float levels, no air leaks in intakes, air filter clean, Electrical connections 100%, ignition coils OK, no sign of moisture behind magneto/stator cover or on source/pick-up coils. Engine earth wire secure from head to frame?
So....
New plugs, 0.7mm gap to start with and set air* mixture screw 1.5 turns out.
To flush carby with cleaning solvent (spray can from auto access.) Take float bowls off (check for sediment) and fuel lines off and spray till it pours out of float needle seat, Loosen carby clamps and swivel carbies outwards 90 degrees and unscrew pilot jets and spray thru also. Check operation and smooth return of choke.
* Air mixture screw controls fuel-air mixture at idle speed and is a trial and error thing. Pilot and Main jets regulate cruising and acceleration mixtures and ranges according to rider style and riding and climate conditions.
If there is any undue noise comming from the top of the engine with revs slowly rising from idle to 2000 revs, you may need to check camchain tension and valve clearances, easy done with some simple tools and a manual. Downloadable free with an engine search!
Goodluck and Cheers.

Floats not set


Float tabs come set flat to surrounding plate, bend up to decrease level and down to raise level. Raised level too much and you risk fuel overflow on sustained inclines and too low a level and you will lean out at high revs and damage valves/piston real quick. There is no set level to speak of, but better to err on the side of losing a bit of overflow. The overflow drains from the carby via a plastic hose from just above float bowl flange.
Cheers.

I would say the problem is in your carbys, with the float levels, or a sticky needle and seat. If you open the fuel valve, fuel will flow into the carbys, ans shut off once the correct level is reached. I think the problem is in your carbys, not the fuel valve. I would remove the carbys, take the bowel off the bottom, and check the needle and seat, and float levels. It is not recomended to change the float levels from standard.
