    Staff 883 carb

    I'm getting my neices '86 883 running after about a 6 year nap. I'm rebuilding the keihin carb, not a CV. I don't have a manual for it, and  I don't want to buy one just for this one issue. I need to know what the float hight setting is for it...

    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

    Re: Staff 883 carb

    I can take care of it with the numbers you gave me Steve. Do I want the spring in the needle depressed, or needle just touching seat, before spring depresses? I forgot, yeah, what else is new...

    Re: Staff 883 carb

    Thanks Steve, that was my first thought.

    And if I don't write my name as often as I do, I'd probably forget that too...Hope you're feeling better...

    Re: Staff 883 carb

    PS: In case anybody's watching, I'm sure Steve meant 0.63 to 0.67, not .063 to .067. It's also about 17mm...
