There is actually a hyper accurate one you can make yourself using hose for a fish tank aerator and auto transmission fluid/oil/colored water?. Costs about $10

I plan to open a shop very soon that will offer services to all members for a low price. TB sync at most shops will cost a leg and arm

Ah. I'm sure they're all individually synced. Sorry man. Not experienced enough to figure how to adapt it to do 4 at the same time. Dial is the way to go for you.

Easy to make yourself, even for an I4, but a bench sync will get you pretty close. To bench sync, work the butterfly and look at throat wall. You will see a pinhole (should be on the side of the butterfly that goes "down"). Adjust the butterflies until they just barely cover each hole.

You can use sync gauges designed for a twin. All you have to do is sync everything to the first. For example sync 1 & 2, then 1 & 3, then 1 & 4. I think this is right, but it may be sync all to the second. Been awhile, so someone who does this regularly please chime in.

To make your own for an I4, you'll need about 16' or so of clear tube, two "T's" and two 90 degree elbows in whatever diameter your vacuum lines are, and a quart of ATF. You will also need a board to mount everything to. All the tubing an elbows can be found in the plumbing department of Lowes or Home Depot. You want 4 long pieces of tube of equal length, plus two short pieces to connect the "T's" to the elbows. Mount everything to the board, mark a line about 30" from the bottom and fill the tubes to the line with ATF. Reading back over this, you may actually need more than 16' of tube to give yourself enough room to work.

After everything is assembled and filled, let it sit for a day to let all the air bubbles work their way out. Pull the vacuum lines off the TB, connect your new sync gauge, and dial everything in.

This may be a stupid question(not mechanically inclined), but when do you know when and if the tb's need to be synced?
My SV-1000 has about 7500 miles on the clock, and from what I can tell she runs fine..

bad or rough idle, or perhaps even a slight loss of pull/power.

your a/f ratios will be more consistent with a properly sync'd tb and therefore run better. really important on stunt bikes cause they stay in the 3k-4k range most the time.

I made this thread in hopes of syncing my f4i, I now have a 636 and need a tb sync. If i can't find one soon I guess i will make one
