    Nothing works better than pure physics fluidics and gravity. I did the ATF in tubing on a stick and you cannot get more accurate results IMHO

    I agree that a 2X4 with tubing filled with ATF will get the job done cheap but having tried that type of jig (bulky), mercury stix (health/environmental hazard), Twin Max (bouncy) I much prefer Grok's Harmonizer.

    I also agree that while I may not necessarily get more accurate results I think it is possible to get equally accurate results in a much smaller and convenient package that I can actually ride around the neighbourhood with to check my handiwork live and in colour with my Harmonizer on the bike.

    I can't do that with a 2X4 and twenty feet of tubing. Might be fun to try though!

    I also used the plastic tube and brake fluid after a throttle cable replacement. Started so far off it was sucking all of the fluid from one side and heading for the engine. It actually sucked a long bubble through the fluid. Improved the rough adjustment, got in range and it worked fine. What is the yardstick for? I don't need a yardstick to see level.
