TBS - Thanks Shep!

This weekend I pulled out the Carbtune (a leftover from my Concours days) and did my first throttle body synch on my Vee. Shep's instructions made the job a lot easier:


Provided clarity where the shop manual is lacking...

The bike has 4,500 miles and the throttle bodies were right on the money (or close anyway). Still, I adjusted them up and down to get a feel for the procedure.

Funny thing, though. Although no adjustment was needed, the Vee seems to pull harder and smoother than before.

Same thing happens after a wash and wax, too :mod_cool:

Thanks again,


When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
