Okay, Litnin, now your making me mad LOL!
Well do we have a stand off or what
One thing we do know is that the Honda service manual's for the VLX and the VT1100C Spirit have different reference's about the floats!.
Okay, I have another example.
I have a Suzuki VX800 Service manual (I know its not a Honda) but on that model Suzuki states to adjust the floats by bending the tongue.
I found the below in the Honda service manual for the 2001 VT1100C2 Sabre.
Now, I'll just shoot myself in the foot.
I also have a Honda service manual for the Honda VTX 1300 and it states that the floats CAN NOT be adjusted! and if they are out of spec to replace the floats. But, they DO NOT have a tab, a lip, or a lever to bend! they are FIXED!
So, we know that some Honda models have adjustable floats and some are fixed non adjustable! So it don't seem to be a matter of NOT adjusting them or adjusting them but rather if they are adjustable!
