While I agree that people should learn to work on their own bikes, (you never know when a roadside repair will be needed), my advice is for you to take it to someone (Motorcycles Unlimited) and let them do it. They will treat you right and guarantee it.
I used to be service manager of a bike shop and I can tell you that working on carbs is not as easy as it might seem. At best, most people waste their time because when they are finished, it still isn't right. At worst, you can screw things up which makes it even more difficult (read more expensive) when you take it to somebody.

This is knowledge that you must have if you're going to own a motorcycle in my opinion. This is akin to people taking their bikes to the shop for oil changes. Just doesn't sit well with me. But that's just my opinion.
I hear ya. If it's something a person feels up to doing then by all means, they should learn to do it. My point was that many people leap off into carb work unprepared and without proper tools.
Once they get in over their heads it can cause further headaches for the guy that has to sort it out.

BTW one of my friends has an FJ1200.
VERY sweet bike and one that is not left in the dust by newer bikes. He keeps it in his living room and I am not exaggerating when I say it looks like it is brand new.

Can you PM me with some info on your carb synch tool?
