Mikuni Mystery

Hello Again All:

Rehab of the 1975 KE100 proceeds. A question on the Mikuni carb and float level. I can't tell which carb type this is other than it has a twin float. Clymer manual specs range from .94 inch to 1.5 inch for the "A" float measurement. I'm guessing that the .94 might be correct, but would like to be more certain.

Can anyone here confirm this? Or, how would I go about finding the carb type number given that Mikuni is the only thing stamped on the unit?

Your consideration kindly appreciated...

U might look at the right side of the carb close to where it slips into the rubber intake tube, there is usually a small number lightly stamped into the metal. Typically 3 numbers over 1 number on the mikuny carbs that age I belive.

Jimmy: Yup, I took a look right where you suggested, and there the number is in very light engraving. Many thanks again.
