Here we will deal with any specific problems related to
your bike model. We will also highlight other sites that give
instructions on how to use the Carbtune II with specific
Carbtune II will balance the carburetors on virtually
Honda motorcycle, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, BMW, Triumph,
Ducati, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Laverda and any other 4-stroke
It will also easily and accurately sync the throttles on
fuel injection bodies, 4-stroke outboards and snowmobiles. It
is also used on high performance motor cars.
The Carbtune will work on virtually any motorcycle
with more than one cylinder. The models below are just a few
R-series BMWs can have readings lower
than 8cmHg, so it will be off the scale. To get a reading below 8cmHg
remove the plastic cable clip from the top cap and insert it in the
bottom cap. Hang the Carbtune II upside-down. Ignore the scale figures.
Zero will now be around 17cmHg on the scale but the full width red
graduations will still be 2cmHg.
