SOURCE: Float setting for BS34ss carb
I have a set my float to 22.0 +- 1.0 for a Mikuni carb.
To set floats, drain the carbs, pull the carbs from the bike invert and remove float bowl.
With the carb inverted, take off the float bowls. Take off the gasket. Use a vernier caliper or an accurate device to measure from the carb body to the top of the float block.
Here is are a couple of good sites about carbs and such.

How did you celan the carbs?? Need to strip and dismantle all parts / blow out with compressed air / Check float adjustment etc./ reassemble, ensure there are no air leaks.

It is OK to jump start your motorcycle from a car battery as long as you do not crank the starter too long (it will burn the armature) and as long as the car/other vehicle is not running when you jump start your bike ( you can damage your electrical components( igniter box)). See if you can exchange one with a friend to see if that is the bad component.

First remove and re-check, have you connected the battery terminals to proper locations.Is any of the battery terminal got loose or burnt.Is the battery terminal bolt, getting in contact with other metal part and shorting.----------
Tighten the frame ground, battery negative, battery positive, starter solenoid.
Dead battery.( i agree battery is replaced., but still check battery voltage)
The battery positive cable goes to the starter solenoid.
With a large screw driver, touch both terminals of the solenoid at the same time (careful of sparks).
If the starter motor turns, the battery is OK.--------
Check the main fuse.
Could be bad ignition switch.
With a good battery and the key on, the main fuse terminal should have battery voltage (check with a test light).If there is no voltage , bad ignition switch. ------------- Check the voltage to battery, the voltage to starter and voltage for voltage regulator.If battery, has voltage, and starter has voltage.Then check the voltage to voltage regulator/.If the voltage regulator is having no voltage, then its the cause of problem/.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
