Carb Sync Vacuum

Post by jekeene » Tue Sep 03, 2013 5:25 pm

Just got a 83 Interstate. Looks good and runs good but knocks at idles bad. After checking the forum it looked as if the carbs needed syncing. I bought guages and went through and got them all to match. Sounds better but still not perfect. I'm a little concerned though becuase in the how to article the the picture shows a vacuum of about 9 in hg, I'm using the exact same gauges and only pulling about 1.5 in hg. As I said bike seems to run ok but I would think my vacuum would be more.
