Re: Please help with carb sync 99 cbr 900
Yeah. I did that last night. I loosened the carb assembly up last night and pulled it off and looked at it. The idle adjuster is definitely going to #3 like both manuals say so I guess the manuals are correct on the master carb. But, they were both still wrong on where the vacuum hose comes from. They say it's coming from carb 3 . On my bike it's coming from #2. I just have to figure out the sync adjusting screws now. This is where there is conflicting text and photos in the manuals. I guess I should go by the Haynes and not the factory service manual since the photo in the Haynes shows how the screws are on my carbs. The factory service manual doesn't even show them in the right place! This is odd since I have come across errors in the haynes manual that i had to highlight for future reference. There is one screw on the right side of carb 1, one in between carbs 2&3 , and one on the right of carb 3. Any idea which screw will sync which carb or do i just do a trial and error? I know sometimes one screw will sync a pair.
