Float adjustment question.

Can anyone tell me where you take the measurement for the float level. The picture in the manual is not very good and it does'nt say where. Thanks for any info. This is for a 2005 230f.

the float should be level with or slightly away from the base of carb. Hold carb at angle so the float tang bearly touches the needle and seat. Why are you adjusting it anyway ? If it is flooding you should check for trash under needle and seat.


I have the bike in the basement torn apart to give it a good maintenace going over and thought I should check it. Do you measure it back where it is connected or the opposite lower end when it just contacts the pin?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it !
