You should balance the carbs each time you dismount them (one of the things the tech should be doing after valve or carb adjust). Insure you don't leave any air leaks or it will never run right. :huh

Most folks seem to leave the vents on the right side for carb synch as they are easier to get to and tie back when you are done.
