And then just put the float bowl back on. Am I missing something? I guess I still don't understand why it's necessary to file down the tab.

So you can adjust it if necessary WITH the float bowl ON.

On my 2016 Xr650l, I gotta d-type air-fuel screw on my carb and I adjusted it 2 1/4 turn as specified on this website and got it dialed in. Every bike is different and takes adjustments here and there. Trust me after all of the work, you will have something beautiful that will have you saying, "Yeah, I did that"! Keep going you're doing well!
