Float question

Recommended Posts

my floats were almost all the way down wheen i checked earlyer. i originally took off my carb to check jetting.

Main 165, pilot 45. didn check leak or needle

My question is. if my floats were really low would it effect starting and also when i blipped the throttle about 1/4 throttle it would stall out and it when id go to give it gas quick to jmp say a log it would stall out. Would floats being pretty much all the way down effect my bike like this?

i thought it was jettingbut myjetting seems to be similiar to everyone elses. bike is a stock 2005 yz450f

:thumbsup:

If you think the float level is off, check/set it according to the manual. A float too ow can make the bike harder to start and over all jetting a bit lean. But then so could a clogged pilot jet after sitting all winter.

Your bog the is the AP. Ensure you have a strong squirt and then do the various steps as out lined in the numerous posts regarding proper setup.

The float level will affect jetting, yes. Low level (measurement over 8mm) makes it leaner, high level (measurement numbers less than 8mm) makes it richer quickly.

I mergerd the identical thread you created in the jetting area with this one. Please do not ask the same Q in multiple areas.

It makes those answering do twice the work and makes it more difficult for those good TTers that search for an answer instead of taking the lazy way out.
