can float level be checked with carb on?

Recommended Posts

I think the float level may be off in my CRF250. It is a MAJOR pain to get the carb off.

I found a great tutorial here, but all the procedures indicate u have to remove the carb. Any way to do this with the carb on?

It does not twist very much side to side so I can't twist it sideways.

Thanks!

Sometimes, taking the bottom drain hose and curling it up aong side the carb, holding the bike upright and opening the drain screw, the fuel level will be 'displayed' in the fuel lin alongside the bowl, but it is hard to get a accurate reading. There are tools for this but you'd have to first use the tool on a correctly set carb of the same model to know what the level is supposed to be. If it is off, you still have to pull the carb though...
