Will it Start?

Ok,all I have left to do,is put on the choke linkages,put the boot back on,then put the carbs back on the bike.My question is,Will the bike start with the carbs not synced? Right now, my pilot screws are out 2 turns.I know you all say about 2 1/2.Do I go ahead and get the pilot screws adjusted first? Then worry about syncing the carbs? Steve

not trying to sound rude or get smart with ya, but your bike will have to start to sync the carbs as syncing them uses the vacume the engine produces

Not taken as rude.I figured it would start,then I would set the pilot screws,get it going as best as I can while idling.Then I guess I'll see what happens when I give it a little throttle.Am I on course?

Sounds like you're on the right track to me. Even if the carbs are outta sync, the bike should still run. If you'd try taking it for a spin with them outta sync, it'd probably run a bit rough, but still run.
So concentrate on just getting the bike running first, then work on the carb sync.
