Gianmarco Randazzo: Nice video! I can't get one point: can I make this calibration even without cleaning the carburators first? I mean, I have my bike in here on the side stand, can I just try out your method or I need to do anything else first? thanks!
Bajnokable: Red White Green= Hungary :D
Conrad Kritzberger: Correct: Your narrative of what you did with the carburetors (left/right or front/rear; leaner or richer fuel mixture) is EXTREMELY non-existent. So, you're leaving it up to "us" to experiment... without giving insights as to what you're doing with the carb adjustments (up/down... to raise or lower one side or the other.) Poor narrative.
ThrasherGnar: moron lol
David OToole: Agree with RedNeckHippie.
David OToole: Concerns about fluid getting sucked into engine.
Only use sufficient fluid or position the tubes so that when one is nearing the top the level of the other falls below the tube (and is then sucking on air).
Tape them or fasten them to a board or box so theat they can't fall over.
Elsewhere people have questioned the use of water and suggested petrol.. DON'T. It is NOT the nature of the fluid water/oil but the incompressability of fluids which will cause problems in any case.
David OToole: Two comments:
As far as I can see the carburretors will be balanced when the level is UNCHANGING (indicating that the pressure above each fluid is the same). NOT when the fluids are at the same level. HyzerGlen says this but it is easy to miss.
Also - He says that when they are in sync the revs DROP to their lowest level. This can't logically be right. When they are in sync they will work better together. Shouldn't the revs rise? Not a good explanation of how to make it but still very useful

redneckhippiefreak: Water is used to clean the head and valves and in some cases adds power.. no harm just a lot of back fires and sputtering if not atomized correctly.. The old spitfire planes got that name from the WATER injection system that added lots of horse power. " Push the button and climb like a wild cat" was an expression I've heard when relating to these systems.
Jerrold Adler: Here's a tip for making this setup a little safer:
Don't use water, which will suck water vapor into the carb (changing the mixture) or suck actual WATER into the carb if the bottles get tipped over (you don't want that). Instead, use Marvel Mystery Oil or a similar oil-based additive. One: It's red, which is good for visibility. Two: if it gets somehow sucked into the engine, it won't hurt anything! It'll just burn with the fuel, maybe smoke a bit.
davnroxie: Absolutely brilliant! I have a 75cb750 That I have had for years and I know the carbs need synced. I can't wait to try this!!!
Brenton Telford: I have set my mixture screws to the recomended setting then i played around with that til the bike felt the most powerful
Brenton Telford: Thanks Dogastrophe, I ended up figuring that out and making the design successfully but does he change the mixture screws or the balance screw? I ended up bench balancing the carbies (taking them off and using a needle to adjust the butterflies to open at the same time) and the bike runs much better and kets an extra 20km's per tank..Is there a way to use this method with the manometer to adjust the mixture screws or is it just for the balancing?
Dogastrophe: I wish I could draw this for you ... may make more sense. Each stopper has two holes - for the tubing that you are going to run to the carbs, push in just far enough clear the stopper. Connect the two bottles by making an upside down "U" with another piece of tubing - this piece goes down into the bottle (~3/4+/- of way). You will want your set up to be air tight so check stopper in bottle and tubing in stopper (and tubing onto carbs). Hope this made sense. Cheers
sirhaggardly: Hey this looks like a great design for a homemade manometer - no issues of the fluid getting sucked into the cylinder. However he water vapour that is being sucked into the cylinder is going to affect how the fuel burns, essentially changing your air/fuel mixture. You'd probably get closer by using oil instead of water.
Brenton Telford: Hi I watched this and could not see where the pipes went and ended up doing it wrong, I shall reattempt but. (I have a 98 across) is it that the hoses go from the vaccum part to into the bottle? the pipe does not go into the water does it? does the top of the bottles have to be sealed or can the pipes just dangle in there? there is a pipe that goes from 1 bottle into the other (is that in the water?) Please reply
stephane talbi: just tune my carbs on my v-star 1100, work just fantastic, reusable and inexpensive yet costless,thank you HyzerGlen
Bogdan Comanescu: 1 with 2, 3 with 4 and then 2 and 3...for all 4 carb. bikes!

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
