Order of tune up ?

Post by Reedcutter » Sat Jun 29, 2013 2:34 am



Hi guys

Could someone please suggest what order I should tune my gl1000 ?
Ie: ignition timing, valves, carb sync, anything else I've missed. Don't know if I do it in wrong order if il throw something else out. Thanks

You should do the valves first simply because once set nothing else you do will change the setting. Then the ignition and the carbs should be last. The carbs can't be tuned properly unless everything else is in order.
