Carb synchronization

Postby tbeiler » Sat May 02, 2015 8:45 pm



I would like to synch the carbs on my 86 Aspenade. Not that its running badly, I would just like to synch them for optimization.
Is there anyone in the Kitchener Waterloo, Cambridge Guelph areas in Southern Ontario who has a synchronizer I might be able to borrow.
If borrowing doesn't work, I could bring bike over and pay with some beers or cash.
Thanks, :D

Or, you could make your own out of some plastic tubing and a bit of engine oil.
