put a jet kit i nt he other day, an ivan's, on my 2000 zx-6r.
basically the insturctions said to set flaot levels at 7.. How do i do this?

In the kawi service manual it says i need a special tool part #57001-1017 pg section 2-9 of the manual.

Local dealers said they have no idea of it.?

You don't need a special tool. I think that tool is a little calibrated glass tube used to check float level by attaching a tube to the bowl drain.

I had a hard time setting float level when I installed my jet kit. There are special tool available but they are a little pricey. I made a little jig out of 1/4" Plexiglass. It looks like a U. The two legs touch the gasket surface of the carb and the top of the U goes over the float. You can do it with just a ruler but it is hard to eyeball it and get them all the same.
