How hard is it to take a Sync Reading.

I got the wifi sync tool now but I am not ready to tear everything apart. Still riding. Can I just lift the tank to find the vacuum nipples or do I have to go for covers removal, tank removal?

Smarter minds than mine will answer but I believe I have read that there is no real point in synchronizing the 2014+ DL1000 unless you have the full electronic diagnostic equipment and even then it only affect idle.

(However I may be wrong.)

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

I don't know if this link will work for you but check it out. DL1000A (L4) SERVICE MANUAL
The instructions specify how to use the Suzuki SDS tool. You'll have to check the HealTech Suzuki OBD tool instructions for how to lock/set the ISC valve when using it.

It says the fuel tank needs to be lifted and the air box taken off.
Disconnect the IAP sensor vacuum hoses (1) from the throttle body.

Connect the respective vacuum tester hoses (1) to each vacuum nipple on the throttle body.

Equalize the vacuum of the cylinders by turning each synchronizing screws (1) and keep it turning at idling speed. NOTE: Always set the engine speed at idle speed.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

VTom. I have read a couple of times that the sync is not always perfect from the factory. Having too much time on my hands and also being hundreds of kms from the nearest dealer I decided to do it...'for the Halibut'.
GW. I am now set up with all the necessary tools including one fat shop manual that arrived last week. I fully know how to tackle it and it may happen this fall or next spring. My question was can I get to the vacuum nipples by simply lifting the tank. Then I can just plug in the wifi sync gauge and see whats what.

You don't have free vacuum nipples like the older bikes did. You have to take the hoses from the IAP sensors off the throttle body. The manual says you need to take off the airbox but the manual has said things that were wrong before. See if you can get at the hoses and air screws and you can tell us.

Let us know how it goes. I just picked up a used HealTec and am interested in trying this out over the winter.

I did mine and noticed a difference at low rpms. seems smoother.Both my older Vees were very sensitive to throttle body sync.My DL650s not so much.
I will do mine again this winter. Not sure if you can do it without removing the airbox...not with my hands for sure ! LOL

you still need gauges to sync, not just the Healtech. I bought this.
