Thanks.
Interesting concept since it makes the whole airbox active and not just the upper half. My problem would be the sealing of the bottom half (and the price of course)

I think float height behaves a bit differently. It is the one setting you can't easily quantify its effect by a WB. It does not affect, or maybe it has a very little effect, on steady throttle AFR or...

My friend messaged me earlier on following a longer ride that his bike is short on power higher up in the revs. Therefore, it could be that stock mains are on the lean side.

Yes, an extra shim, but before doing that, check out first the experience of proper float height with needles at 2.
It might (and most likely) not be necessary at all to go up 1/2 position.

My bike needs lower floats, around 1.8-2mm measured upside down (stock exhausts). It seems to be one of the odd ones, but it could also be a pump and climate thing. If you ever sense a lean-ess just...
