Sounds like your idle is going up too much during the process.

On the 1100's No. 3 is the base line carb, so you adjust No.1 to No.3 first, then use the center adjuster on the left side to balance No. 2 and No. 4 together, last use the adjuster on the right side of No.4 to balance the left side carbs with the right side carbs.

Make sure your idle is down around 1000. Does your needle flutter like crazy? If it does, you must lightly squeeze the vacuum line just a lil to smooth out the needle so you can get a good reading.

If you have the new blue-fluid syncpro, do you have the restrictors installed in the vacuum lines?

needle does flutter, will try squezzing the line.
idle is right 1000 rpm, but fluid shoot's high, have to shut off bike or it will get sucked into the motor.

I use a set of vacuum gauges sold by J C Whitney and the restritors are actual valves that can be adjusted to smooth out the bounce of the needles. Will your restritors close all the way? Are they adjustable?

I hate a fluid gauge, best place for them is the nearest landfill. You will have to install adjustable valve on each line or change the medium of the fluid so it is not so sensitive . Even if you have the lines restricted properly and pull one off the engine will suck the fluid out of the gauge before you can blink your eyes, leave one hooked up and pull one and away goes the fluid.

Old technology, time for new .

The Carb Tune works well for the smaller wings (will not work in the 1500)

The best all around is a set of simple vacuum gauges.

Any light oil would do fine, say sewing machine oil. Etc...

I loaned mine to a friend - and soon after had to buy a bottle of the fluid.

If you buy the "right stuff" buy two while you're at it.

tranny fluid it is just filled it. not going to china to buy blue fluid :) the book said hook it up to number 1 to set the sync pro. that incorrect it has to be set to numer 3 that is why it was shooting up all the time after i set to number 3 carb it set perfect and , almost completed the sync.

thank's again for your help everyone.

The gauge is designed so that it works on most bikes. Manufacture doesn't know what your going to use it on, plus the translation to English usually leaves something out. Just happens the goldwing's #3 carb is the fixed one.

Other bikes may be different although my xj650 also balanced everything to the # 3 carb.
