I have a 1991 suzuki vx800, I put a new/used set of carbs on it and am having trouble getting them set up and balanced. It is a v-twin wi 2 carbs.
any help would be helpful, let me know what other info you need to help me

Thanks
Mark

I'm a motorcycle guy as you may tell by my user name. However, my bikes are singles so no experience with syncing carbs.

I suggest looking for a motorcycle specific forum, there may even be one for your specific make of bike. I know as a Dirt guy, there is no better resource than Thumpertalk.

Good luck.

thanks. I have the suzuki shop manual and it is worthless ovcourse it was made for trained techs,the specific forums are helpful but I just cant get it I need somebody to "draw me a picture" the night hawk is different as they I think just have screws to balance and I have a cable but i will take a look at the link you provided..thanks. to make it more complicated I had to chance the carbs so all the cables had to come off of the bike so I need to start from there for install and balance instructions..Ill get it one day thanks guys

?Not sure if this would apply to a motorcycle, but I used to balance my twin carbs on my British sports car with a garden hose. Simply by listening to the sound of the air induction, and getting the tone the same, seemed to work. I don't know how precise it was, but the car always ran beautifully and had lots of power.
