Here is a vid that show you how to properly adjust your carb floats to 21mm using a micrometer on a Mikuni carb.

Scott, he's using vernier calipers there. He's a bit of a bumble, with how he treats the carbs. A note to be taken, any time you make any adjustment to the floats, you should relieve the pressure off of the seat and let the floats rest gently again. He's pretty rough, handling, kind of careless, in my opinion.

He does batter then around thats for sure, but for those who've never done this Im sure the video will be useful for the idea, if not learning the actual way to treat a carb float.

I concur with both JW and Honaror. But at least he gets a rough idea of how to set it up. Better than a measuring tape and a pair of Multigrips.
