I had a GS of the same year prior to this bike, and did my TB sync with little issue. With this one, I just can't seem to get it. Bike is warm, Twin Max calibrated, Idle at max sensitivity, Then adjust my way up to 4000 RPM stopping at 2K and 3K on the way. Check it again, before I tighten everything down and all is well.
When i tighten down the nuts, I use the two number 10's and I swear that top curl nut does not move. Then, when I start up again and recheck on the TM, it's off again. Not much, maybe .25 +/- on one side. Then I try again, and it all repeats. I spent all morning on this simple task. Am I just trying to hard to make it perfect?
Also, I never ran my GS at the speeds I run this RT (80-90 and 4500RPM+ plus at cruise), but I just seem to get this buzz in my feet, and a very slight vibe in the bars that I don't recall on my GS. I know I should feel this bike, but how much, and yes I know that's subjective? Again, am I just trying too hard and being hyper sensitive to any vibe?
On two previous TB syncs on this bike, I did do the valves first. This one was just a TB sync due to above mentioned vibes.
