Thanks everyone for your opinions. I'll probably wait with throttle body synching for a while, since the bike is idling and running nicely. I'll check the valves in the springtime to make sure they are not out of whack. I'm gonna bet they are pretty much in spec., as they were the last time they were checked. These old GSs, once broken in, seem to be pretty tough machines. Took the old yellow pig about 25,000 miles before it stopped burning oil, so I guess they design them to break in slowly, but last longer then most bikes. Stock seat became comfortable about the same time!
