Mammometer

Does anyone have any recs for a good motorcycle tool and supply shop?

My service manual just came in and I want to get a mercury manometer so I can sync my carbs after I check my valve clearances.

Thanks!

hahaha... thanks but i'm happy to finally own a vehicle without an ecu controlling everything.

out of curiosity, are the ecu's on newer bikes obd-2 compliant or do you have to get an expensive/proprietary piece of hardware to interface with it?

You buy a power commander and I do not think it is OBD2. The bikes are not closed systems currently to my knowledge anyways.

Are the injectors controlled based on feedback from O2 sensors or just throttle position?

Based on how much throttle you give it. That is why you purchase a power commander. Then you can adjust your curve.
