    throttle body syncing with fieldpiece digital Manometer

    I have a buddy in the HVAC business who was showing me his fieldpiece dual-port manometer. He just purchased a more advanced manometer and offered to sell me his current model. Has anyone used the fieldpiece dual-port manometer for syncing their throttle bodies? It looks like it would do the trick

    Thanks

    Since all you need to do is achieve balance it will probably do the job assuming it is sensitive enough. -150 to +150 mBars is quite a range and you have to consider this is a purpose built tool for the HVAC industry and not made for synching throttle bodies.

    Around here the popular tools are: (in no particular order other than my personal preference)

    - Harmonizer (designed, built and sold by Grok over on ADVRider. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...ght=harmonizer This is a VERY nice tool and I have used nothing else since getting one.

    - TwinMax, jumpy and sometimes pesky to zero but gets the job done. http://www.amazon.com/Twin-Max-Carb-...ywords=twinmax

    - Morgan CarbTune, fine product from the boys in Belfast. http://www.carbtune.com/

    - Good old mercury sticks if you can find a set. Now that mercury is all but outlawed many folks have made home made sets using transmission fluid and other such things. You can google "home made manometer" and find lots of things like these http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2J_N4VVGGo

    That would be the fourth option mentioned in post number two. The YouTube video shows a guy synching a four cylinder bike using home made ATF fluid manometers.

    I've been using my home made manometer for years for my airheads and my 1150GSA. It's been a good soldier and cost under $10 to make. I have to say that recently I've been looking at the Harmonizer though...

    When I've put the manometer on the bikes after messing around with things and the levels are way out the fluid can bubble and move too fast and then it takes quite awhile for it to settle before I can check again. I too have heard nothing but great things about the Harmonizer product.

    carbtune with a oilhead boxer

    Those of you with the Morgan Carbtune unit...How well does it work with the boxers???? I saw a youtube vid of one and it kinda seemed "bouncey" at idle.
    But I do have a KZ650 as a second bike so having the ability do sync a 4 cyl engine would be sweet!!

    Your thoughts????
