I will also reset the float height to 8mm. Which is it? 7mm or 8mm?


If it's too lean at 7mm you sure don't want to go to 8mm. You were asked the method you used to set the floats. Did you have the carbs upside down or just let the float rest on the pin.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
