floats will go to top, as the name says. should cut off fuel just below top., but that would not give a problem if cutting off early, fuel would still be available to engine. So what is your problem?

Floater height i have adjusted to 2/3 level of all carb reservoirs individually and to date it has been performing to the best. 23km/ltr dual carb GS450E.

It could be jetted too rich,the choke could be engaging at WOT,or,you could most likely have weak valve springs which are "floating" the valves at higher RPM's.Also,you might try lowering the needles in the carbs by a couple clicks.
Good Luck!

You can narrow the search by looking for any twin lead 12 volt points ignition coil, as long as you dont get a cdi, or electronic ignition coil, any point coil will do the job

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

release the chain with the cam tensor located underneath the carbs then line up the notches on the wheel and have lots of patience.
