Syncronizing the carbs...Tool

What is the best tool to use to adjust the sync screw on the carbs? I ended up using a long needle nose plier today to adjust the screw, that is a pain, if you know what I mean....

I need to do it again soon after I find the vacuum problem.

CAREFULLY pour fuel into each hose till full
then reconnect hoses to fuel tap.

FYI... If you have a vacuum petcock, it would be easier to hook up a hand vacuum pump to petcock to get fuel flow. No need to run engine or risk spilling fuel all over.

I knew they were going to do that to you. People just can't read and get the message anymore. So (I corrected the spelling),


I really would like to know what kind of tool you use to TURN THE SCREW to sync the carbs

Geees.... if your gonna yell at us for the facts.....

The manual say to use a 7 mm wrench.... From Kawasaki Manual:

With engine idling, turn adjuster bolt with a 7 mm wrench to synchronize the butterfly valves.
*When the adjuster bolt is turned in. the vacuum increases on the rear cylinder.
When the adjuster not is backed out, the vacuum deceases on the rear cylinder.

**When the adjuster bolt is out of position to insert a wrench or screwdriver, work as follows.
* Stop the engine
*Turn the throttle lever a little to adjust the bolt adequately with a wrench or screwdriver.


Personal note on above... manual calls tools as 7 mm wrench and yet in instructions it throws in a screwdriver.... guess they just can't make up thier minds!!

Thanks Guys and Gals, It was not my intention to yell.....

If anybody has tried to adjust the screw with a 7mm wrench, you will see how many burns you can recieve. I was only wondering if anyone has found a better way...

Thanks again, and sorry about the yelling.

Hey dta116 you were not the one yelling..... It was that troublemaker cegodsey..

He was the one that was yelling..... in your favor of course.... my responce was more in fun, but took the info right out of the book that sits next to me!

might try to find a flex drive ( cable ) put a socket on it and snake it through.
