work to get it to the stage where it runs.
Now maybe another week of tuning and adjusting coming up or longer.
Then a ride video hopefully.
How to adjust motorcycle carburetor floats.
Just a quick demonstration of an easy way to adjust your motorcycle carb
floats. If you are experiencing overflowing carbs, or if your bike is a

This is my 1975 Kawasaki Z1 which will go on auction in eBay, spring of
2011. I also have an awesome 1983 Yamaha XJ900RK that will go on auction in
eBay, spring of 2011 - a very rare bike, only 3,000 came to the USA! I
will have it in a video for viewing on this channel, sometime between now
and spring 2011. Thank you for viewing. Jim
