Re: Idle got the best of me!

It means 1&2 are rich, or they are out of sync. When was the last time they were sync'ed?

Re: Idle got the best of me!

I synced them a couple of months ago but i had trouble with the gauges (old home made set up). They are a pain to get to the vacuum ports to sync them! But i guess i will order a motion pro sync tool and try that, should i bother pulling the carbs apart or should i sync them 1st and see how it reacts?

Definitely sync with a real sync tool, makes a big difference.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

I picked up a Motion Pro sync tool, a guy i ride with had it, he used it once and sucked all the fluid out, so i have to order the fluid, he said he didn't calibrate it. I took my carbs apart and cleaned them real good, inspected everything, put them back together, i turned the screws to 2 turns just to see what happens, and now it hangs around 2500 rpm for a split second, it will not run at all with the choke on which is bizarre. I think i will go back to 2.5 turns and hope the sync will smooth it out.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Pulled the carbs back off, set them at 2.5 turns out, noticed the boots on the airbox were pulled halfway out, so i pulled the plate off, put them back in place and put it all back together, it's back to normal now, except the idle isn't bouncing around that bad, i can actually idle it at 1500 rpms instead of 1800 rpms, now the waiting game for the fluid so i can refill this sync tool. I'm ready for a F.I. bike..

Should idle around 1250-1350 when its all good, this is where it needs to idle when syncing too. These things always bounce a little at idle, but yours sounded abnormal. When you get it sync'ed right, you'll probably be much happier. I check the sync on mine every 3 months just because I'm that anal about my bike. I remember reading in a manual somewhere that it should be done every 4000 miles.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Does it take a special tool to get in between the carbs to adjust the screw? I tried my skinniest screw driver and it didn't fit?

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Its a pain in the azz, but a skinny phillips is what you need. You just have to find the right place to get at it from.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Does it matter which carb i use to calibrate my motion pro sync tool?

Re: Idle got the best of me!

I got my carbs synced today, had several problems with my Motion pro sync tool, i'm not too crazy about it, 2 of the 4 restrictor jets were clogged, anyways it was way out of sync, it took me awhile of adjusting, adusting the idle, i finally got it synced about as perfect as you can get with that tool. Bike runs so much smoother, idles smooth, only one problem, it's idling around 1600 rpms and my idle adjustment is turned out all the way. So what does this mean?
