Comparing mine right, with Alans  left.The only difference found is float height by a mil and a bit.
Rick came by for a visit and showed me a Yamaha diagram that took measurements from the screw head/ flange that holds the float bowl to the carb .
More research needed

good  to   see you  yesterday john ,  yup  the  diagram   I  showed  you was  from  the    Yamaha   service  manual for the  sport  5k7    or  1.1s   "S "    variant .   which does`nt  give a  float height  in mm as  such    but  the  diagram   shows    a  WG  level   to  float bowl  chamber  +_3mm  ,  the  image shows  the  level  pretty much  with the screw  heads to  the float chambers ,    and after   a  number  of   fill ,drain ,adjust float tangs , fill and measure again  .. hokey  cokey ,  once  I was  happy   and refitted  to the  bike  again .  ran the best   it  ever  has    .   great  ride  down n  back   ,great  weather ,very little traffic   as I  took all the  minor  country  rds  back .
