Thank you sir.
I'm sure you will like it!

Wonderful...

Now we've got that cleared up, can we quit playing with the two-cyclinder model and move along to something important like the 3-cyl version please? Oh, OK, 4-cyl if you must.

Hi Alex,
I am targeting the Christmas season for the 4-cylinder version. A fair bit of work done on the Harmonizer is applicable so I think it's realistic.

It's been started but has a long way to go.
As far a price is concerned, It will be under $200. How much under $200 has yet to be determined. I'm pretty good at designing things in a cost-effective way, so I'll do my best!

I'll of course be following this thread to see how the rest of the world likes the 2-cyl version, and waiting impatiently for the next version.

The Christmas season feels like forever away but it isn't really. And getting it right is more important than just getting it out of the door. Not in love with the possible price, but if it REALLY works, makes tea and coffee, has a hot and cold running maid service, that is survivable. After all, compared to the boatload of money I've ploughed into the Laverda so far...

Probably should have gone for twin carbs on the Norton instead of the single Mikky. Will it balance a single carb?

And best of all, you don't even need to connect it or turn it on... "Close proximity" is enough!

You can get this one:

for $100. If you don't mind limitations on position, sucking fluid into your motor, replacing evaporated fluid, etc..

About singles: The Harmonizer Gauge Mode gives you precise vacuum and RPM numbers to fine-tune idle RPM and idle mixture

The 4-cylinder version will have a gauge mode as well.

Have one. Hate it.

The Flea Market selling price will ease the pain of the new one.

Got Mine Today

Got mine at the P.O. today. Looks great. I couldn't resist hitting that red button thru the Ziplock. Everything came on and seems to be functioning just as it should. Glad I remembered it was auto-shutoff. Put it back in the box and into one of my Zegas and took it home. Can't wait until the weekend to try it out. I think it will be simple enough even for me to use.

Cool!
I put a lot of effort into making it easy to use and making it VERY difficult to use improperly.
Fighting with the fiddly knobs on the Twinmax (and watching people post video's using the Twinmax improperly) was a big part of the incentive to do the Harmonizer. (That, and the fact my job got shipped to China).

P.S.
It is auto-shutoff, except in beacon mode. Beacon mode will persist until the mode is changed or the battery is depleted.

Are there supposed to be any instructions shipped with the unit? Fortunately I read your first post and googled luer connection before I screwed them up

Looks like a cool device especially the guage function. I'll try it on the airhead tonight.

Hi Bob,
The Luer connectors are fairly forgiving - hard to screw up. Even doctors can do it

I'm currently not shipping any paper with it.

The instructions on the label give you the basics and the end panel talks about the difference between using the red and yellow ports in gauge mode.

I'm working on a website where there will be video's and other material available, but it's not up yet.

After you try it out, please let me know if you think I need to include some printed material with it.
The printed material would be a rehash of the information in the first post of this thread.

Looking forward to further impressions/results if you care to share them.
Thank you!

Thumb Ordered one...

Hey, Grok.

Just ordered one from a day or so ago from you. I'm the guy from South Texas. Looking forward to trying it out. I have a Twin-Max I've used for years on twins. As you know, it's OK, but leaves a lot to be desired, hence my order of your unit.

I made the order through the PayPal button on the first page of this thread, and got a PayPal receipt, etc. to "Far Horizons", but nothing since then. Any idea on when my unit will ship?

Thanks!
