Bench syncing carbs in Ct

Does anybody in Ct have a way and know how to bench sync a set of carbs?

I just took apart and cleaned a set of carbs off of a Nighthawk 700SC and want to sync the carbs before I put them back on the bike.

Long ago we used to bench sync big smoothbores by using 4 equal lengths of solid wire, about 3 inches and put a right angle bend about an inch from the end,all4 identical. Then back out the idle screw untill the slides were totally closed and slip a wire unde each slide with the bend pointing to the side. Then open the throttle and adjust until each wirebend began moving to a vertical position at the same time.

i hold them up to a light, then look at the level of smile poking through. vacuum sync is the proper way to get everything perfect though

What he said. Make sure the plungers are sitting at as close to the same level as possible. I have a home made manometer that will sync 4 carbs if you want to come pick it up. I have it filled with green fork oil, visible and better than getting water in your carb. The only catch is that you have to keep it, I have no use for it and I was considering selling it for like $20.

In action...
