Decided to balance the carbs with a homemade manometer. Any good sources for making or purchasing the 5mm x 0.80 adpaters?

Ole Guy,

I've seen this on the forum. Just done a search for "vacuum port adapters". Came up as the second one on the list. I would put the site here but I have trouble linking it. They are listed for $2.48 each and come with an O ring. The adapters are made in stainless.

Hope this helps. Terry

Jim sells them and they come with the chokers to reduce oscillation if you are using vacuum guages.

Okay, I made some adapters out of some copper tubing I found. After reading the manual - Haynes - it says #4 is the base cylider. I messed with the adjuster on the left. The the one in the middle on the right. The idle ran up to about 1200 or 1300, so I lowered it to about 1000. I am not sure about the rear adjuster on the right side. If there is an order, I do know it. It is running better. Thanks for the tips on where to buy the adapters.

I made mine, too. I used #8x32 brass screws. Drilled a small hole through them, then cut the heads off. Screwed them in about 1/4 inch, then used a nut as a lock nut, finger tight. Plugged the hoses on the end sticking out.

I used 1/4" tubing (built my own) for my V-Star and used the old jets that came in the carbs when I upped the jet size. They pressed in there quite nicely and reduced the quick movements from the fluid.
