Ok so I have the motion pro carb sync tool and I tried to sync the carbs now that I have rebuilt the carbs and resynced the valves and i got the bike up running and when i attached the carb tool it sucked the fluid up and out instanly. This was when i had it all hooked to the carb 3 for calibration of the tool. What could cause this the bike runs and i am using it but sounds like crab and drink fuel.



Please help i just want to make it purr once before I rip it all apart.



Thanks'

I think I would try to call Motion Pro Tech Support first, and see what they say. Might be helpful. I'm wondering why one would have to calibrate a liquid filled tool? :baffled:

I have only ever used the old "Carb Stix" tool. Uses Mercury. Have never had this kind of thing happen to me. :waving:

First of all you have to have the tool connected to 2 carbs for it to work.
Second, carb synch will not help the fuel consumption.

You should not have messed with the screws until the gauges were connected. It will almost require a mechanical synch to get them close enough to start the fine adjustment. You can leave the carbs in the bike. Remove the intake runners and with a thin feeler gauge, the thinner the better, put the gauge under the #3 throttle plate and adjust the main idle screw to get a slight drag on the feeler gauge. Then set #1 with the screw between the carbs with the same drag on the gauge, then set #4 then #2. From there you can use the motion pro tool to fine tune.

as dave said, was it hooked to 2 carbs? if so there is a huge diffence in the settings of each carb. it happens.

Hope the liquid was not Mercury!! bad for motor, worse for you. I prefer the electronic units, no fluids.

Dave

The screw in question are for the carb sync gauge not the idol screw. But i like your point and i should of done this when i rebuilt the carbs to be safe. One thing they dont tell you in the manual I guess. I will check this out and see if it helps. Thanks for the info.



Oldnewbie it is not mercury thankful or else i would be really in trouble.

Ok, my bad. You can get a valve to put in the hose or just pinch it off with pliers or something until you are ready to adjust to keep it from sucking the fluid out.
