Banish poor running this weekend
Warm it up
Warm the bike’s engine, then lift the tank to access the carbs. Unplug the fuel pipes, turn the tank through 180 degrees and reconnect it. Or remove the tank completely and use a slave tank.
Free the blanks
Unscrew the blanking screws that cover the stubs that feed into the inlet manifold and clean the surrounding area. Screw in the brass adaptors from the balancing kit, finger tight only.
Mount and locate
Put the gauges in a place where you can see them, then set your bike’s idle speed a little higher than normal. Now find the adjustment screws; on multi-cylinder bikes number three or four tends to be fixed.
Adjust and test
Adjust in pairs, starting with the pair with the fixed screw. Tiny tweaks make a big difference, so blip the throttle and let the revs settle each time. The readings should be within 2cmhg of one another.
