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)

DRZ400SM Carburetor Removal / Pilot Jet Removal
2008 DRZ400SM with Dynojet Jet Kit. May also work
for DRZ400S. I think the DRZ400E uses a different carb so ymmv. I am using
a Clymer Repair Manual as a reference.
At 5:50, the pilot jet numbers are reversed. It should be: OEM - 22.5, DJ
Kit - 25.
At 11:24, it is the starter (choke) jet, NOT the pilot mixture screw.
When I bought the bike, it sat for a couple of years and was sparingly used
monthly. It was running lean, needed the throttle cracked open slightly or
it would die, and was backfiring a lot on deceleration. Took apart the carb
to clean it and found that the pilot jet was clogged. Hope this can help
