Carb check

I hooked up my synchronizing gauges to see what was up,, looks like carb #3 has a dirty idle jet, I shall seek and destroy this problem and make it as steady and the other three and then I shall adjust them.....

Ok so I put the carbs back on the bike and number 3 carb is bouncy so I pulled the carbs again and cleared the idle jet on #3 and the main jet too.. Pay no attention to the numbers on the sync. tool 2 is supposed to be where the number 1 is and I hooked everything up different like 1 and 3 or mixed up... If I don't do things backwards I wouldn't be me... :lol: Here's before and after videos....

before

And after.....That's good now...
