I'm working out the kinks on a fairly new to me 06 1K Vee. I'm sinking a significant amount of money into it with farkles and stuff. So far I've added the new Givi Trekker 3 piece cases, an Easter Beaver fuse block, a Baldwin Saddles seat and a few other things. It is getting there but the engine is annoyingly un-smooth.
In the upcoming October 2011 issue of Motorcycle Consumer News there will be a review of the Trekkers and Adventure MotoStuff mount I wrote along with pictures of my DL.
I also have a set of Leo Vince cans on the way. I've got a set of Battle Wings in the garage waiting for my new Ingersol Rand compressor to arrive. I have the HF tire changer and change my own tires.
Here are my current questions. I haven't checked the TPS or the done a TBS yet. I'm assuming I should wait until I install the Leo Vinces. I'll need to build the $4 sync tool. I had a mercury one and got rid of it when I bought a SK tool for syncing the carbs on my ST1100. If anyone is familiar with the SK tool is it possible to use that to sync the throttle bodies on the DL? I haven't had the air cleaner off and don't know what it looks like under there.
So my questions is... Once the exhaust are installed which should come first the checking the TPS or TBS? I've done all the work on my other bikes but this is the first fuel injected bike so I'm hesitant to start pulling hoses and turning adjustment screws until I'm clear about what I'm doing. I do have a service manual.
If I knew of a dealership in south central New Jersey I could trust to have competent techs I'd be tempted to take it to them. But I haven't had any that come highly recommended and I read too many stories about the bike coming out of the dealer worse than it went in.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
