I've new to the game of bikes and carbs, what exactly do you to tweak to them to tune them to be equal? The only thing I can think of for these carbs that I know of is the air/fuel screws but those are only for idle??
I'm going to be pulling and cleaning my carbs this weekend, will probably have to sync them after I finish. Need to get all this info out ahead of time so everything goes smoothly and I'm down for as little time as possible.
I'll tell you how it went for me. I couldn't find my maintenance manual anywhere last night SO......
Both carbs are connected at the throttle (obviously). The right carb is driven directly off the throttle (grip). The left carb is connected to the right's throttle linkage with an adjustment screw and tension spring on the screw. You adjust this screw to tweak the left carb to match the right carb (match the vacuum signals). You are actually adjusting the idle of the left carb independantly when you do this.
The idle screws are something independent of this process although adjusting your idle mixture may/will change this balance.
For me, the right left carb was lagging behind the right, so power from one cylinder was being used to pull the slack cylinder, aka sluggish throttle response and lower power.
I will say that 10W30 Valvoline tried to seperate in the tube a little. You might try something heavier, gear oil, 20W50, No smoke... I dunno. I guess that's why they use mercury.
MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE ALL THE PLASTIC WASHERS GET BACK IN PLACE ON THE LINKAGES IF YOU PULL THE CARBS APART!!!!! Sorry, but my buddy almost died on MY bike when it stuck WOT because one of the washers were missing.
