Default Float height adjustment

I recently put in a k&N air filter and an exhasut and noticed gas overflowing everywhere. So i followed the clear tube method explained by freez but the fuel line was at 4-5 mm above the split instead of 3. What could happen if it is above 3mm by a little? I noticed a little throttle studder as i was climbing some hills and when i was sideways on a hill gas dumped out of the over flow tube on the right side(the low side). does a stock machine spill gas out of the tubes during hill climbs and stuff like that, i just never thought to check? what do you suggest is going on? alright thanks

well according to the manual its suppose to be 3mm below the split but if you read the post freez answers that question after adjusting my floats cause i was having an overflow and gas spilling its pretty damn impossible to get it around 13mm float level and have a clear tube of 3mm below.

so i adjusted 3mm ABOVE the split and have a float level around carb#1=15mm and carb#2=16mm or visa versa it made the clear tube 3mm above...anyways it runs beautiful and if you read on it the post i think he said if your doing wheelies it will spill alittle bit, it shouldnt do it if your normally riding up hills, i believe you have to be at a nice angle for it to start spilling if properly adjusted i would say anything past 10 - 11 and def straight up (if your thinking about the the angles as a clock, u know what i mean)
