Default How to set float level. Revisited.

A while back, I posted a link on how to set your float level.

Here it is again for those that need to have their's reset..

For some reason the photos won't come up.
Here they are in the order that they appear in the instructions.

(Fuel inlet needle shown with Viton (rubber) tip. The Viton is used to isolate the fuel inlet needle from vibration and to create a better seal against the fuel inlet valve seat.)

The first link no longer works.

I have checked and adjusted float level on other carbs, so could someone post some basic instructions with dimensions?

Thanks,

Josh

The float Height should be 16mm from the bowl mounting face to the top
of the float as shown in the picture.

Sounds right, but a rule of thumb is to have the seam in the float parallel to the carb body.

I set the floats on my GG by simply tilting the carb and closing the float gap until it stopped puking fuel at a 20 to 30 degree angle, then took a test ride and checked it at W/O.
May sound stupid bit it works.
A friend has a 09 that still drools when on the side stand.

Do this guideline also work for the newest generation of PWK.
I check my PWK 38 today - the float look totally different - only plastic no metal.
The GG 300 2009 Nambo is leaking on the trailer.
The float hight was 11mm - now I go to 14mm.
I can't test it until now.
My shock is in service.
