Anyone know the stock needle setting and float height on Mikuni's for a 1977 KZ650? Need to dig out my manual.
Cant find it!
Took of the carbs and noticed the float tabs are bent in uneven degrees.

It's best to do the service fuel level measurement which measures the actual fuel level in the carburetors. If the fuel level is correct & the floats move freely, the carburetors don't care about the tangs.
