Carb syncing
I also use the 4 vacuum gauge method, very accurate,fast and reliable. I also snug up the "cruise control" on the twistgrip to hold engine about 1500 RPM while the carbs are being balanced. Also I use a flat screwdriver to turn the adjusting screws. This allows small tweaks to made without having to apply any pressure on the screws as needed on philips screws. The adjusting screws conveniently accept both types of drivers. After all are balanced in the proper order, release "cruise control" and blip the throttle slightly and recheck all is balanced at 1200-1500-1800 just by twisting the throttle. Note that the balancing is not done with the throttle at idle (not sitting on idle stop). As long as the individual idle mixtures are set correctly the idle will be perfect. This is probably not the way that is described in the manuals but has worked for me for many years.
