Hey guys, attempting to put an 87 ZL 1000 back on the road after approx 6 years of neglect. I`m having problems with the carbs "big surprise" even after cleaning bowls,jets,etc. Floats look ok but i`m not sure of the setting. Just got the bike and have a lot to learn, so any help is appreciated.

I do have a service manual, but it only showed adjustments,not float level settings. The bike will run no more than 4000 rpm,and i have to almost completely block the air into the far left carb. to make it do that.When i do that, i get fuel on my hand.I also noticed what i think is a little cam chain noise,so maybe i should look into that first,then valve adjustment,then compression test.? It does seem to be running on 3 cylinders but i think the biggest problem is that 1 carb.
