    Carb sync.

    Has anyone done a Carb. sync.

    Neet to have it done on my bike. How difficult is it to do. I am looking for some pointers on how it is done.

    Moved it to tech for ya.

    If you do most of your own work up to the point of popping off the valve cover to check the clearances then you can do your own synching. But you need a synch tool. The good ones are not cheap. About $150 or so. Even the cheap, and dangerous, mercury ones called Carb Stix are about $80 but frankly keeping something as toxic as mercury around does not apeall to me.

    And OF COURSE you'll want a service manual before you tackle this sort of work. Each bike has a slightly different order that the carbs are tuned and that will be layed out in the manual. After that you just set them so they are all the same vacumn level.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
