Float question

my floats were almost all the way down wheen i checked earlyer. i originally took off my carb to check jetting.

Main 165, pilot 45. didn check leak or needle

My question is. if my floats were really low would it effect starting and also when i blipped the throttle about 1/4 throttle it would stall out and it when id go to give it gas quick to jmp say a log it would stall out. Would floats being pretty much all the way down effect my bike like this?

i thought it was jettingbut myjetting seems to be similiar to everyone elses. bike is a stock 2005 yz450f

:thumbsup:

If you think the float level is off, check/set it according to the manual. A float too ow can make the bike harder to start and over all jetting a bit lean. But then so could a clogged pilot jet after sitting all winter.

Your bog the is the AP. Ensure you have a strong squirt and then do the various steps as out lined in the numerous posts regarding proper setup.

Are you sure you are checking the float level correctly?

i lookded at everything else how do i do the squirt level?

45 degree angle and a 8 mm ruler i found a great thread and followed instructions..

so i think so. but they were all the way down almost level with the bottom of the carb

The float level will affect jetting, yes. Low level (measurement over 8mm) makes it leaner, high level (measurement numbers less than 8mm) makes it richer quickly.

Carb off the bike, float bowl full of fuel, safety glasses on, outside of the garage, twist the throttle wheel as fast as you can. How far dos it squirt?

so that could be why its harder to start and has the bog/ cut out? its runnin rich wich would be to much gas-air right? basically flooding its self out? nd my fuel air mixture srew was all the way in also

I mergerd the identical thread you created in the jetting area with this one. Please do not ask the same Q in multiple areas.

It makes those answering do twice the work and makes it more difficult for those good TTers that search for an answer instead of taking the lazy way out.
