Ride report

Hot damn all that hard work and finger blood paid off.  First ride after tb sync and I actually noticed a difference.  Subtle at first but definitely there.  Nicer manners around town at low revs and less vibes in my bars at cruising speed.  If i didn't know better i would have guessed an efi map change. Before the sync I put on some throttlemeisters which actually made vibes worsen, contrary to my expectations.  Sync has improved things to the point where I will keep the factory bar ends in my tool drawer. 

I realize this could be placebo effect but I dont care if it is or not, I am happy.  Not everyone will have same results I'm sure.

Would I do it again?  Absolutely.

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.

Great- glad that worked out for you. It will make it easier to forge ahead next time you do it while you are bleedin', sweatin' and swearin'.  ;)

I ran mine to a mounting block that I made up

Why didn't Big K think of that. You could market that mounting block. Did you come up with and easy way get to the center screw?

Because it would add expense to the bike that customers would not appreciate on the show room floor. We wouldn't appreciate a feature like that until long after we had paid for the bike but it would raise the price right away.

Bill struggled with reaching the adjusting screws just like the rest of us but he does have a very slick way of avoiding any problems with the mirror and flashlight; I'll let him tell the story though and maybe he'll post a photo of how he synch's his T.B.s.

I'll add to this topic that, if your TB throttle plates are not closely adjusted each to the others, make them so before trying a dynamic balance. A small drill bit or wire gauge can be used as a feeler to set all butterflies at the same angle on the throttle linkage with enginge off. This will allow for proper fine adjustments of air bleed screws while running.

A quick look to see that the secondary flies, if still there, are roughly equal will also help ensure proper mid range performance.
