Carb sync tool

Postby zman » June 22nd, 2017, 4:44 pm

Hey fellow riders,
Got myself a Yamaha venture that could use a carb syncing. Anyone got a tool I can borrow or would be willing to give me a hand tuning it? Always up for returning the favor in any way I can.

Thanks everyone.

If no one has one, I understand they're pretty cheap & easy to DIY. I've never needed one myself, but I wouldn't shy away from trying this if that changed.

Thanks for the idea, im trying to get one a little sooner than in a few days of shipping so I can hopefully make the Monday night ride. I looked up the DIY ones too. Got my fiance working her way through some mikes hard lemonade so I can have clear containers to do a variation of a DIY gauge. :lol:
I went for a ride today and it started off smooth but as I got into it I started losing power and responsiveness. Definitely feels like one of my carbs is way behind the other 3 and running rich.
I'll post pics and a short tutorial after if it works so others can do it too.
