I know this had been mentioned somewhere in this form - what is the float level setting for a cb750 honda??? I'm resetting my carbs and I cann't find any reference in my shop manual. I know how to measure - I just forgot what the value should be??

Is it 12.5mm or 22.5mm ???

thanks;

thanks guys - I found a web site that also said 26mm. BTW this is for a K1 carb setting.

From all documentation I've seen, you measure with a "template" that you can make from just about anything from the mounting plate of your float bowl. So remove your float bowl, flip the carb upside down (some folks prefer setting the carb on it's side) and set the floats so it just touch the tip of the fuel needle at the recommended measurement. The fuel needle is spring loaded, so you have to keep a careful eye during the setting procedure.

good luck.
