300 2t float level

Recommended Posts

Does someone have an accurate description on where to adjust the float, the manual setting at float level with bowl still has it leaking.   Where is the 6-8mm measured at?

I can't give you exact measurements, but when I pulled my carb off to check the float it appeared exactly as the manual indicates but I had fuel dribbling when it was on its side stand during rides. My exact measurement that I lowered it is: a smidgen and it cured that problem  :rolleyes:

Turned carb up side down and you can feel where The float tab touched the needle valve, most put it parallel with the carb body I set mine where the float is up about 2 mm and it doesn't leak, did the same on all my Bikes, and in the old days my sled to!

Followed those instructions and mine does not leak any more.

My float was way off. Set it to close the needle valve just before parallel.
