Carb Sync
My bike was running well but I had poor gas mileage. I just purchased a Carbtune and I thought I'd check it out. Man I'm glad I did. The PO had the bike in the shop for a leaky needle valve. The carbs were pulled for the repair. The person who synced the carbs didn't get them very close. Man what a difference. My bike runs smoother and at 55 mph mike bike is run 300 rpms slower. The Carbtune was easy to use. I hope my gas mileage comes up.

That's great, the Carbtune is fantastic. It only takes me about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Found a buddy with a set of vacumn gauges. Got the carbs synced up perfectly! So...before Pulse Generators and rebuilt carbs: 28mpg. After: 40.5mpg with a mix of highway and in-town driving. Took my first long highway ride today. I expect the next fill-up to reveal closer to 45mpg.
