Morgan Carbtune

Ordered the Carbtune and pouch, £64, last Wednesday afternoon, received in the mail Friday noonish, so 7ish business day delivery from Ireland. Came packed in the pouch. Minor assembly, and she's good to go.
Was never happy with the state of sync using my ancient mercury sticks, as they've become contaminated with.....something (gas?) and there's no way to open them to clean them out...not that I'm altogether sure I want to "clean" mercury. Also issues with the mercury seperating in the tubes, creating "bubbles"...enough was enough.

This was as close as I could get it using my buggered mercury sticks:
Initial "before" sync
Initial "before" sync


And this was after 10 minutes or so with the Carbtune:
After sync!
After sync!


Wonderfully pliable hoses, nice glass-filled plastic adapters, decent instruction booklet.

In use:

A heck of a lot easier to hang off the bike too, as it's probably only a third of the length of the sticks.
Went for a short blast around town......oh yeah, MUCH better. :D
Now, does it work better than NEW CarbSticks? No idea, but I like the idea of being able to disasemble and clean should the need every arise.
Any questions, feel free to fire away.

I have the exact same set for my wing and other bikes, like you, my mercury ones made the pipes go all funny and I could never get all 4 levels to the same height.. The unit like yours has been used a few times in the last 3 years and still looks like new and works great..

Oh Yea!

I really want to get one of these for my bike also. First I have to rebuild the carbs. So that tool is on my "Must have List" and it looks like the both of you are extremely happy with it.
