Default Easiest way to set float height?

I need to check this on my 93, 750 kat, I read carbs 101, but I dont quite picture it well, can somebody explain it to me in a easier way or provide pictures? I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

Remove the bowl.
Gently let the bowl hang and measure from the lip of the carb (where the bowl would meet it) Use a good ruler like this:

Now if you look close at the bowl you will see the metal tang that pushes/pulls the gas fill valve. Gently bend this until the float hangs at the right range.
