How To Adjust Carb Float

Post by JoshD »



One of my floats is leaning way down. How do I adjust this? Thanks

good review of how to above but JUST to change the float height you bend/straighten..adjust teh brass tang at the center of the float's pivot point..measuring should be done with the carbs standing on end so the tang lightly rests on the float needle w/o depressing it..

PS pics not mine "stolen from other threads and sites..roady's and Randakk's..






HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
