How do I do a Throttle Body Sync?

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=231335

Jim uses a Twinmax in the pictorial, but it's basically the same procedure using a manometer or Harmonizer.

The processes are all the same!

Great thread! A nice compliment to the FAQ!

I see the fuel pressure regulator bypass is covered but what about the ultra common quick disconnect flange cracking?

Here's an ADV thread on the topic:

And here's the Beemer Boneyard (10ovr) fix:

And let's not forget...

How do I get rid of the fuel strip once and for all?!!!

Line the inside with female hook and loop field. Then you can dress the inside with a bunch of maxpedition stuff.

How do you replace the EWS ring? I'll look to find the URL.

Question

Any demand besides myself for:

"How do I reduce vibration at the handlebars (or everywhere) on my Hexhead R1200GS?"

A proper valve adjust and throttle body sync helps a LOT. There will, however, always be a small amount of vibration due to the nature of the motor. Some people are more sensitive to it than others and never get past it.

Pick up one of these for a while and there will be no vibration on the GS

Seriously though, I addeed beemerbuddies and it made all the difference for me in the bars.

Having scratched my head for a while, before Ian Hartley on UKGSer did some sterling investigative work - here is a fusebox schematic for the R1150GS Twinspark Servo/ABS. You can print it, laminate it and stick it onto the inside of your fusebox lid as a reminder. Remember to select 'Print actual size'



The Single-spark has fuses 8, 9 and 10 as spares, but is otherwise identical...

I've added generic grip puppies, lead shot in the handlebars, had the TB/cables sync'd, valves adjusted, and still have seemingly lots of vibration, mostly 4500rpm to redline. It might be all in my head, but it seems to keep getting worse.

Obviously this is the wrong forum thread to discuss, but I know its been an ongoing topic of conversation. SO, any links and meaninful input here is probably entirely helpful to all boxer engine owners.
