How to adjust the floating chamber valves

When having dismounted the carbs (just dismount them, you donīt have to separate them), remove the floating chamber cover. Using a gauge, measure the distance between the upper edge of the float and the edge of the floating chamber, with the valve closed. The distance has to be 7 mm. If itīs not, adjust the distance by carefullyand slightly bending the float. Pictures scanned from "Reparaturanleitung Honda XL600V" by Bucheli Verlag, Zug/CH
