I have the Honda ones that are similar to those, Just be sure and get some aquarium line valves to adjust the flow rate to steady them out if bouncing around.
And have a Mighty-vac to check the gauges to each other, there should be adjustment screws on the back of the gauges.

I also use the same gages your looking at, but I only have two gages mounted to the plate. When I purchased mine from e-bay they came with the shut off valves.

Yup, I had those when I had my 1500 - they worked fine... I had a buddy that used them on his Honda Outboard motor too... I don't see the dampeners in the photo - make sure they are included with the gauges - you will need them...

It's a fine set, I have one myself, but the secret to good syncronization is so much what you use, but knowing how to do it.

Thanks for the insight, photo, and Hondaline lead!

A couple people have a two gauge setup. Is that if you have a six cylinder? Seems like if you have a four cylinder, you'd want the four gauge setup. Or maybe two gauges is enough for any bike?

Just my opinion, but I much prefer the fluid/tube type synch tools. I think they're easier to read and see what you're doing when making adjustments. I suspect they're more sensitve, too. Whatever you decide, I'd say get a gauge for each cylinder...synching is much easier when you have feedback from all manifolds at the same time.

at about $102 USD you cant go wrong buying a Carbtune unit with case,easily setup,requires no fluids or dampers,trying to save a couple dollars to use anything else just isn't worth the hassle involved,course this unit i believe is only usable with the 1100 and 1200 and the valkyrie
after using one will never go back to the four guage unit which i tried once for about two mins and sent back,but that's imho

Below ain't because I'm cheap, it's because I'm damn accurate in short order with it.
This is what I use when I use something like this:
