Have you got a inline filter as some rubbish my be stuck to the seat, yours being a SR/43 should have over flow pipes, leave the fuel on and see if it is leaking out the tubes .
Allso drain the bowls just to see if any crap has come through.
Try gentle taps with a screwdriver handle around the bowl area as one of the floats could be stuck.
Ill play with the carbs tonight. In the meanwhile, I had a light bulb moment.
Does anyone have a spare (an old one would do the trick, too) float valve sitting somewhere? The thing i'd like to see is how much pressure in grams it needs to have for the small spring inside to compress fully. In exchange for the measurement ill buy you a beer next time you're in Lithuania!
I'm going to measure the values myself using my girlfriends kitchen scales (when she's asleep obvioulsy) on the float valves ive got (2 new oem, 1 old strong, 1 old weak).
