  • float height measurement pre kat

    dumb question alert!!!
    I just got a second set of carbs and looking at float height found them set to the nominal 14.6 mm at the "highest part of the float" which happens to be the integral arm which connects the floats to the needle. It's square and easy to measure and I was wondering if this could be the correct location for measuring float height. the picture in the manual is not clear and both the manual and our wiki indicate that the floats will compress the needle spring (which they don't).
