Does anyone have a video?

Or have the proper way to set float height ?
I have gathered the float height to be 14.5 +/- .5,but have read many different opinions on how to adjust the height.
Thanks

i set the carb on an angle to where the float is hanging, and barely pushing down on the pin in the needle.

If you have the carbs off, the general rule of thumb is that if you flip them upside down, the float arm should be level, or parallel with the lip where the bowl mates to.

Some carbs I've seen have a little index mark on the outside of the bowl for checking float level. Stick a bit of suitably sized clear hose on the bowl drain nipple, and hold the other end up next to the carb. Open the bowl drain screw(with the bike vertical) and the level of the fuel in the bowl will be indicated by the level in the hose. It should line up with the index mark on the bowl.

If it's a little off it's not really a big deal, as long as it's close.
