How much should I expect to pay for a throttle body syncing?

And where should I go?

I've got a Aprilia Falco that won't start without stater fluid. Think the vacuum may be whack. Thanks

Got the throttle bodies balanced oil changed and valves adjusted at Motorcycles Unlimited. I think it was around 400 but if you PM Patrick he'll give you a solid price. He's a sponsor on here.

How many miles are on the bike?
Was it running well and than suddenly started having an issue or was it a progressive thing?
Does it start without ether when it's hot?
Has the bike sat up for an extended time?

Talk to Patrick ^^^ don't think tb synching is your issue. Not saying its a more expensive issue. But the point of synching is to adjust vacuum to all the cylinders so they equalize flow and the bike runs smoother and may gain a tiny bit of power. I've done it a bunch of times (sold my sync gauges to a member on here tho) but I couldn't imagine them being so far out of sync that the bike was having that kind of issue.

if it won't start a throttle body synch is not the problem.

follow up with Patrick. He has worked on a couple of my bikes and i have never felt the cost was out of line, and the service was great.

I doubt a tb sync is your problem. I'd also be exceptionally weary about using starting fluid on that bike. Modern sportbikes aren't your forged-internal, iron-everything small block chevy v8s of yesteryear. Ether may, in fact, break something.
