Carb Sync.. ?
I noticed today while syncing the carbs on my bike.. it sounded better when i did it by ear.
2002 vstar 650 classic
Having some MPG issues and whatnot, started the bike warmed it up and drove it for a bit. I came back and while it was running (since i planned on syncing anyways), just to use a screwdriver and see if it made any noticeable difference. I turned the screw 1/2 turn left and it didnt sound better. I turned it back to where it was, then 1/2 turn the other way... ill be damned. Sounded great, rpms increased, flawless throttle response.
The only problem was than when i hooked up my homemade manometer, it was not synced at 1/2 turn, but more like .10 turn from where i last synced the carbs.
Anyone explain this?
