Question Could anyone tell me about this "Vacume Sync test" for a Kawi Versys

I am at 9.5k miles, and thought the service interval was 10kmiles, oh well.

So, owners guide says at 7.5 miles to service oil, oil filter, and new spark plug.

I have been doing new oil and filter every 2.5k miles.

Factory tech on the phone said they need to do a "Vacume Sync test" also.

What is this vac sync test, and why do I need it?

TIA

A vacuum sync test is where you check the amount of vacuum for each carborator or throttle body to make sure they are even for each one. If they are out of sync it can give you problems with the idle, flat spots, rough idle, hanging rpms, etc.

OK, thanks Fiero. I have never had any of those problems.

I'm considering saving myself the $350 (oil, filter, spark plug, vac sync test, labor), and just changing the oil/filter again, and give her a new plug. I can do that for $35.

The sync test is not in the owners manual as a necessary service, so I see no reason why me doing the work would void any warrante.
