if you lift he floater you must have a clearance of 2mm on the top of the inner side of your carburator so it wont leak.

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.

SOURCE: Have a 2001 Yamaha 1100, carbs are leaking, why?

Fuel over flow is normally caused by dirt getting into the fuel lines and blocking the valve in the float bowl. The reason that if wont fire is because there is too much fuel in the engine and it is flooding.

Turn the fuel off and remove the carb.

take off the float bowl and remove the float. held in by a bar.

check the valve and blast compressed air into the valve seat to clear any debris.

Rebuild the float bowl but do not put the case back on yet. a simple test to see if it has worked is to gently hold the float whilst blowing down the fuel line.
As you move the float up and down by hand it should be harder or easier to blow, resulting in a complete stop when you close the valve completely. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY TOO MUCH PRESSURE TO THE FLOAT BOWL)
as this could bend the float. Once happy with the operation of the float, replace the case and install back on the bike.

Please reply if this does not fix the problem.

Stalls under deceleration, will only start again after a min. or two

It is definitely a carb issue. Is it running rich?(meaning that the carbs is pushing to much fuel into the motor and not enough air) You would be able to tell if you can smell gas in the exhaust fumes while it is running. As you decelerate the fuel overwhelms the motor and causes it to die and it takes a few minutes for the flooded carb to clear out and start again. Your float bowls height are probably off. It wouldn't hurt to rebuild the carbs with new main jets and reset the float height measurements to stock. You will need a manual for those specs.

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.

My Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 (1992 -A1 series) sounds as if it is mis-firing. All cylinders appear to be firing as the exhaust pipes are getting hot. I have checked and cleaned the plugs and checked wiring to...

How to sync carbs on a vstar 1100 silverado

Well some people buy those carb sync tools with the floating bubble.

Then is it pretty simple, in that if you start with both carbs lifting the bubble the same height at idle, and the linkage opens both butterflys at the same rate, (no slop in one linkage), then they will also be in synch at top end.

But with motor cycles you usually have variable venturi carbs, with a floating dashpot, that already acts like a vacuum carb synch. If the dash post is the same height on both carbs, they are in synch as well.

Its not a problem, I need to know if there is another way to set/measure the float hights without the need of the speacial Kawasaki tool for doing so? I understand the hieght should be set at around 15mm...

Here is the fallback method that has always worked for me: have the float arms (that part of the float which attaches the floats to the hinge) parallel to the float bowl gasket surface just as the float valve contacts the float - without depressing the spring loaded tip on the valve. Frankly, I have used float gauge maybe once in my life - this method is much faster and easier.

What is the float height setting for a 1984 harley davidson ironhead sportster with stock carburetor

With the float bowl off and the float assembled in the carb, hold the carb on it's side with the needle and seat hinge upwards.

Set the float height to 0.630" to 0.670" (16-17mm) from the "bottom" of the float to the gasket surface where the float bowl gasket seal is.

These carbs are notorious for leaking past the needle and seat even when the float level is set correctly. They make a tool for refurbishing the seat in the carb as it is not replacable but the tool is very expensive for what it is and the amount of use will get out of it ($100). Sometimes I've set the float level an additional 1mm low (18mm) to put more pressure on the needle if it does leak. Good Luck!

Suzuki gs550l flot height

not sure on the exact specs but flip the carb upside down and look how the floats look to the horizon of the earth. Sounds silly but that is how pretty much all bike mechanics set them, just make them level to the earth. Good luck

White smoke from exhaust

Your float levels should be 15.5 mm for the 83. This measurement is from the bottom of the carb base to the bottom of the float with the needle gently resting in the seat. I have found that tilting the carb assembly until the needles lightly seat works the best.
When adjusting the level height with the assembly completely inverted, there tends to be too much pressure from the weight of the float onto the needle resulting in an inaccurate measurement.
If you need any more help, let me know.
