How long do Yamaha R1 engines last?
Depends. For track use I expect 2 years live span of my R1 engine and hope for 3. In the HRC manual for a honda CBR1000RR 08, it is stated that you need to do a complete engine rebuild every 3600 miles. But this is based on extreme track use, so it very much depends on how you use it.
Should carburetor float be level?
You want to set the float height so your bike runs on the properly metered amount of fuel it needs. If the floats are set too high, fuel will overflow via overflow ports that are drilled into the carb body. Another dangerous issue caused by fuel leaking from a carb- fire!
How do you tell if a carburetor is rich or lean?
Typical symptoms of a rich mixture are:
- Poor fuel economy.
- Sluggish acceleration.
- Choke not needed from cold starts.
- Sooty or black spark plugs.
- Sooty or black muffler end pipes.
- Strong smell of gasoline when the machine is at idle.
- Uneven running (will often slow from regular idle rpms and then stop)
How do you check a carburetor float?
Hold a float next to your ear and shake it. If you hear gas inside, the float has an obvious leak. Reveal less-obvious leaks by grasping the float by the tang with a pair of pliers and submerging it into a pan of very hot water. A stream of bubbles will also indicate a leak.

What happens if carburetor float is too high?
In an extreme case, if the floats are set too high, fuel will overflow via drillings inside the carb body. In addition, fuel may flow into the engine unrestricted, which, if the engine is not running, can cause hydraulic lock – that is, as the piston rises on the compression stroke it cannot compress the fuel.
How does float height affect idle?
The float height adjustment will mostly affect only part throttle openings.It has a static setting that,when at idle,the float valve will open only very small amounts.At WOT (Wide-Open-Throttle) the float will be at its lowest for full fuel flow,so the height adjustment will not affect WOT.
