Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom Motorcycles
I would suspect that your problem is something other than the float setting. If your carb has been running properly until recently, there may be trash in the needle and seat. Float settings don't just change by themselves. Once they're set, they stay that way until someone changes it. I'd be glad to send you the float settings but you didn't tell me what kind of carb you're running on the bike. Harley riders are noted for changing the type of carburetor they run on their bike. If you're running the stock Keihin carb, the float level has to be set with the carb on an angle. To illustrate this, I'd have to send you a picture. I'd be glad to do so if you're contact me directly as this forum only allows a file size of 150Kb or smaller. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level of the Keihin CV. If you are running a different type of carb, let me know and I'll send you information on that one as well if I have it.
