The point is to apply some tension on the cables and linkage parts.

Thanks Turbojoe. Will do next time I open the plastics again. Riding season nearing the end in Norwell? I hope not! Still holding out in Wakefield!

I have been putting the bike away after thanksgiving the last few years, we'll see how the weather looks around that time.

Not to rob this thread but does anyone know what size the upper engine mount bolts are?

Winter is coming for many of you and it would be a great time to shim the upper bolt(s). Just sayin.

Jorge,
My experience is there is a significant difference between syncing at idle and 4K.  #1 and #4 are much higher on my homemade manometer.  In fact, #1 and #4 are just about to suck the ATF out of my tube at idle.  At 4K they are dead even.  I suspect this has something to do with the throttle linkage flexing because of spring tension.  Granted, at 4K under load my setup may not be close, either.

I'd be more inclined to think greater vacuum at idle is caused by better compression on #1 and #4...which could be balanced as simply as doing a valve adjustment!

(Of course, valve adjustment may not resolve it, but assuming the rings are good, you could see a LOT of vacuum difference from one cylinder to another based on valve adjustment, as demonstrated in Steve's latest video).

How do foam grips get rid of the buzz in the footpegs? Or am I putting them on wrong? :))

I am not experiencing a buzz in the foot pegs. I guess you could try it if you are desperate. ;D

Thanks, I've never  checked for the difference between idle and 4KRPM; I'll need to do that next time. I just it doesn't suck the ATF out of MY setup. I think that (using ATF) makes me as much a cheapskate as you  :great:
