    Sweet change of pace! Is that just shy of a half gallon?

    How many carbs? I just used vinyl tubing filled with oil for a twin. Never had anything with more cylinders and I don't remember you having anything with that many carbs.
    See
    http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/How_do_I_synchronize_the_carburetors%3F

    and

    http://www.obairlann.net/reaper/motorcycle/manometer.html

    I used oil instead of water because it doesn't break things if it gets sucked into the engine. I didn't bother with the board on mine. I would just loop the tubing over the handle bars.

    I guess if my bikes didn't have FI, you would think I rode a KLR.

    Of course if you have something with more than 2 carbs or TB, then this is completely of no use.

    Not true.

    Multi 4-cylinder bike carb banks are divided in two sections, a left bank, and a right bank, and they each have balance screws.

    Balance the left two, then balance the right two. Once that is done, connect your device to one of the carbs on the left, and one of the carbs on the right - then - balance the two banks with the central balance adjuster.

    Same concept as using a TwinMax.

    The big GS is getting closer. The old shocks are off and most of the wiring has been addressed. The rear shock was easy. All I had to do was drop the exhaust can, remove the rear mud guard and out it came. The front was a little more complex. With the tank removed I had to drop the engine guards, disconnect a brake line tree and remove the alternator cover. So far so good working solo.

    In regards to wiring I found two broken or severed cords. One power cord to my tank bag and one to the intercom/GPS interface. I always wondered why my phone would never charge in my tank bag.... now I know.

    The shocks come today but I fly out at 2:30 before they get here for a 4 day trip. Here is what the bike looks like today.
