is that the piece that is attched to the floats by a small clip?

16mm float height. I'd look at the float needle/seat. Could be a knick in it and or bAd seat. Even a bad plunger on float needle.

Try the float needle and set the height to 16mm. The seat is not replaceable, so if it keeps up you need a new carb. Same thing happened on my 85. Stay away from used Keihins IMO.

Hopefully you can fix it. If not go for an Airstryker 38. They are less than 200 from Sudco, I think.
