Since I've been unable to locate a manual here, can anybody PLEASE tell me what the proper float level is supposed to be for a 1983 1100? Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Val.

I checked the site and checked my floats. He says the correct float setting for a 1200 is 15.5mm. My floats are at 30mm!:eek: If I bend the tang enough to even get close to 15.5 the needle does not function properly, so I'm stuck. And, now I seem to have lost two of the needles somewhere around my bench. This is not going as planned!:(

Mine is a GL1100, and at the bottom of the same page it says that the setting for GL1100 is 15.5mm. 21mm is what he says the GL1000 setting is. At this point, I may just have to use 21mm and see how it works, basically adjusting to make the bottoms of the floats parallel with the edge of the carb body. Thanks again, Val!
