Float heights
« on: May 15, 2008, 08:22:00 AM »
Hi all.

My CB550F2 was registered in September 1978 and my Haynes manual goes up to 1977.

In said manual Mr Haynes says that the carb float height for the F model is 22mm.

I'm assuming that this will be for the the F1 model. Can anyone confirm that this is the right setting for my F2 carbs?

Depends on the type of carbs mate, look on the top and see if the top cover is "coffin" shaped hald on with a screw at each side or "P" shaped held on with a screw at top and bottom.

It ought to be the former and have the same float setting as the 500.

They do have the coffin shaped tops so is Mr Haynes right at 22mm?
