15k Mile Service

Hi

I know a number of you out there have passed this service mileage, and I am about to start it.
I would like to know if anyone has completed the service, including the 'Throttle Valve Sync', on page 1D-15 of the service manual.

If so, did they use the Suzuki advised equipment, or would my vacuum gauges
suffice?

Is there anything else, I should check (other than that stated in the manual) whilst I have the bike apart.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards
Crazyhorse

On my DL1000 I used a home made "manometer", just a piece of clear tubing filled with ATF fluid stapled to a 2x4. Worked pretty good and the cost was only a couple bucks. I'll be using this on my Wee when the time comes.
