I will post up when I get the shim kit, we can schedule a date at that point.

I have a Twin Max for throttle body synching. I have, I believe, all the tools needed to do the job but having duplicates would not be a bad thing. This would include torque wrenches, sockets, etc.

I have some supplies like loctite, hand soap, gloves and rags but you might want to bring what you have.

We could do my bike first for practice and because the engine will be cold. We could then do something of an assembly line to knock them all out.



I have done this twice before but do not consider myself an expert at this.

Here is some stuff to look at to help figure out what to do:

With all this information and the collective geniuses that we is, what could possibly go wrong?
Thanks for the links!
Unfortunately I'll most likely be working weekends thru mid October so a tech day until after that point in time is out of the question for me.
Plus, I'm skierd of the big city!
