How to sync carbs on a motorcycle
This video demonstrates the procedure to synchronize a carburetor on a 1977 Honda CB550. It is really important, especially for bikes of this vintage, to synchronize your carbs at the beginning of every riding season or after any repair or adjustment to the carbs. This bike still needs some work to be road ready, but it has a lot of potential and is super cafe racer cool. If you are attempting to do this procedure yourself and have any questions before you start, feel free to let me know. That's the good thing about Youtube, FREE INFORMATION FOR ALL!!!!! EDIT: Here are a few edits I would like to make to this video after watching it a couple of times. 1. Make sure your carb synch comes after everything else in a normal tune up. This includes Valve clearances, cam chain tension, spark plug gap/cleaning, point gap, ignition timing, air filter cleaning/replacement, and all the air bleed screw settings should be checked. 2. Engine speed for a carb synch should be around 1500rpms if possible. 3. The adjuster screw lockdown nuts should always be re-tightened after adjustment (I forgot to show it)

XS1100 Carburetor Install
How to install the carburetors on an XS1100. The carburetors are the later 1980s design being installed on an earlier model 1978 Standard. There are no carburetor float bowl vent hoses on the '80s carbs so the fittings for the vent hoses on the '78 airbox will have to be capped.





Strobe timing Triumph Bonniville T120R
Strobe timing my Bonnie the most important thing is to check whether the mark on your alternator corresponds to TDC (most likely) or for 38deg BTDC. some later cases with a small inspection plug ieT140 type are set for 38deg but it is always worth checking with the crankshaft notches accessed through the plug at base of barrels. Boyer recommend around 5000 rpm to set timing. If you do not have a tacho continue reving until the mark stops moving (advancing) this is the max revs you will need to set timing.

How To Tune Up A Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle - Ignition Timing And Point Gap
Here's how to tune up a Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle. I go over the static method of setting the point gap and ignition timing. This is the tune-up procedure recommended by the Royal Enfield company. To set the point gap, remove the points cover and turn the engine around until the points are open their widest. Then set them to .40 mm, making sure the feeler gauge goes in and out with a little bit of resistance. Setting the timing is outlined in the video. I used the official Royal Enfield tool to measure the height of the piston, and then set it so that the points close at .8 mm before top dead center. This is a good time to examine your spark plug and clean or replace it. Once you've done this tune up to your Royal Enfield Bullet, take your Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle for a ride to check for any loss of power or pinging from the engine. The engine will ping if the ignition is too advanced, so if you hear a ping, retard it. See my Royal Enfield Bullet 500 at http://www.hoohoohoblin.com/
