    Default How level should a carb set?? jet extentions?

    I was noticing the other day my carb leans backward(I know that sounds dumb) so my q? is A: should I get a carb spacer to level it out. or B: just get some jet extentions (for the secondaries)and don't worry about it?

    Default carb spacer?

    It sits so far backward when I look through the sight windows, in the secondaries all I see is brass(float).

    You should be fine with that intake. If the extensions dont do it the bowl is empty.

    What carb is that??
    It appears to have a 50cc arm on the secondaries (strange for a 4150), it isn't a spread-bore is it?

    No spread bore. Just 800 dp. You can't really tell the angle in that pic unless you look at the floats.

    Something is up with that float. Better pull the bowl and take a look. While you are there add the jet extension kit. lol

    If that is realy the float level fuel would be running out of your down legs.
