    Suggestions for Carb Synch Tools

    I have the guage type synchronizer and for the life of me cannot get my carbs balanced.

    What other types of synchronizers are out there that the bretheren recommend?

    Have you tried calibrating your gauges? Never had an issue with mine, although not as accurate as mercury, they get the job done.

    Morgans and mercury are much easier to read, but the ZZR1200 I tuned this morning is running great.

    Thanks guys! I'll check them each out.

    I remember once in Junior High a kid brought mercury to school and was playing with it. Wonder what he's doing now . . . .

    In grade school we used to play with mercury in science class. Roll it around on the desk. I'm still fine.

    D'oh.....

    I thought the mercury was impossible to get. I threw out my Motion Pro sync tool last year as I found the mercury had gone missing......

    Thanks for that Amazon link, Pete.

    I let a friend use mine years ago and it came back with no Mercury.

    I love my mercury sticks. Bought them in 87 or 88 and they’ve gone through a couple moves and a lot of bikes. Still work as good as the day I bought ‘em.
