Getting that sync-ing feeling.

Syncing the throttle bodies on the R1100 today, as well as a valve check. Look how nice those heads are set up, valve adjusters right there, lots of room to work.


  1. Man, that's almost like cheating. If you feel like you've gotten off too easy, feel free to stop by and synch the carbs on my GS some need little elf hands.

  2. That's okay, I did have to pull 30 lbs of German Tupperware off to get to the throttle bodies.
    Those Motion Pro carb sticks work well. I was worried since they now use blue Hawaiian Punch instead of good ol' poisonous liquid heavy metal, but my concerns were unfounded.

  3. I've been intrigued by this thing for a while now:

    You're right, though - there's something about quicksilver that lets you know the job is getting done right.
