Can anyone explain to me , the steps involved in synching the carbs on a 1989 wing. According to my Clymer manual, the petrol tank should be removed prior to carrying this out. Is this the case , or is there an easier way. What sort of gauges are best? I have read in some reports that the carbs need synching approximately every 5k miles. My bike is normally dealer serviced, and I always ask him to synch the carbs, however I doubt if he has ever removed the petrol tank.

Is this an easy job to do?

Regards to all

You are probably not reading the manual right, you don't need to remove the tank to synch the carbs but you need to remove the lower fairing panels (so you can get a long screwdriver to the synch screw on the right and to connect the vacuum gauges both sides). You don't even need to remove the petrol tank to take out the carbs completely! You also don't have to remove the DUMMY (FALSE) tank panels either, just in case the dealer says you do.
