TB Sync with Tecmate electronic carb synchronizer

Hi,

I'm needing to sync the TBs after a valve adjustment - I have a Tecmate TS-111 CarbMate Synchronizer - I know this will sync the TBs, but from my understanding, there's a particular value of adjustment needed.

Is the sync by using this tool sufficient? or do i need to find a set of vacuum gauges? If so, does anyone have any good recommendations?

thanks,

There are some vacuum values mentioned in the service manual, although you'll find that one TB vacuum bypass adjustment screw is closed (usually the right TB) while the other TB's screw is open a bit... All you're doing is adjusting the TB screw that is already open, to have both TB vacuum levels/readings equal to each other at 1300 rpm idle.

Just synched mine (w/ a set of mercury carb. stix). Not out too much, maybe one cm, but runs better now. Had to adjust the right-hand TB. Thanks for comments from Invader, and others.

FWIW - my FI light was ON while doing the synch, probably from the two electrical connections on the airbox being open, and I used the toe portions from a pair of sox for temporary aircleaners. I pulled my B&D WORKMATE up to the right side of the bike to balance the fuel tank on, but it was FULLY removed first, then I re-attached the fuel and two FI electrical connections for the process.
