Measure from the bottom tip of the float on the end away from the needle valve. When you have it set right the top of the float will be parallel with the carb body.

Also when you measure, make sure the float is just touching the needle, not compressing the spring. I did this by putting the whole assy on an angle where the float just touches. Quaduple check. You don't want to do this again.

Naked Goldwings has a great pictorial by "Roady" that shows this well. I'll have to contact him and see if he will allow his photos to be hosted elsewhere.
