Synchronizing the CarburetorsRevised by V-Dave
NOTE: Prior to synchronizing the carburetors, the valve clearance and the engine idling speed should be properly adjusted and the ignition timing should be checked.
1. Stand the motorcycle on a level surface. NOTE: Place the motorcycle on a suitable stand.
2. Remove vacuum plugs. (Fig.1)
Vacuum gauge: YU-08030-A, 90890-03094
Engine tachometer: YU-08036-A, 90890-03113
4. Start the engine and let it warm up for several minutes.
5. Check engine idling speed. If out of specification, adjust to 950 to 1050 RPM.
6. Adjust carburetor synchronization.
NOTE: After each step, rev the engine two or three times, each time for less than a second, and check the synchronization again.
NOTE: Turning screw clockwise raises carburetor #4 and lowers carburetor #3.
NOTE: Turning screw clockwise raises carburetor #3 and lowers carburetor #2.
Vacuum pressure at engine idling speed is 37 kPa (280 mmHg).
NOTE: The difference in vacuum pressure between two carburetors should not exceed 1.33 kPa (10.0 mmHg, 0.4 inHg).
7. Check engine idling speed. If out of specification, adjust.
8. Stop the engine and remove the measuring equipment.
10. Install vacuum plugs.
Location of Adjustment ScrewsCarbs 1 and 2 This screw is reached from the right side, but is located on the left bank.
Carbs 3 and 4 The adjustment screw is the blurry part in the middle of the photograph.
All carbs This screw is located behind the choke knob assembly on the left side of the bike.
Here's a picture of the Motion Pro mercury sticks. The copper tubes are ballast tubes used to even out the vacuum pulses.
