Bask in your achievement!
I don't own a Ural but this post pushed me over the edge.

It's a lot more robust than you might think !
Well, that's good to know, hopefully I never find out.

Most of us that own Ural are considered to be a little over the edge.

Ural/Airhead procedures

I used the procedures outlined in Grok's 09-23-2011, 03:10 PM entry. Worked great and my RT is much smoother than before (using Carb Mate). Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!

Great news!

That procedure should be useful for many twins with separate, cable-actuated, carbs. There may be differences in the vacuum connections or petcock details, but the basic information should hold.

Glad I could help.

I purchased the Harmonizer and used it to sync the throttle body on the Super Tenere. It worked like a charm.

Now I went back today to change some settings and it was not acting the same way. Also the rpms are all over the place and at times it will stay at 7600rpms. I have never used it over 3000.

Do you think there may be a problem with mine? It is such a great tool and I enjoy using it.
Thanks
Jim

I got my harminizer and did the TBS on my ST. They were saying to move the right screw 270deg. and then sync the left carb. All I did is move the right screw/ right carb to sync it to the left carb. It works fine no problems so far.

Harmonizer came last night!!!

However, I went out this morning to have a bit of a try before a late departure fro work...and I was unable to budge the vacuum tubes at all.

They seem petrified on there...who knows the last time they were off for adjustment...

I would like to say what a great guy Grok is to deal with!!
I had a Harmonizer go bad and Grok replaced it immediately. That was the quickest shipping I have ever seen.

You can't beat his customer service or the Harmonizer. It's a great product.
Thanks,
Jim

Ordered mine on 10/02 and the postgirl dropped it off this morning. And just in time... I had to do an unplanned carb teardown this week.

No printed instructions included, but the first page of this post should suffice. Much smaller than I thought it would be, smaller is always gooder...

Got mine a few days ago and have done some balancing..........
A first class, well priced product that does what it should.
I especially like the self calibration function, and had to train myself not to look at the bike's tach.
Thanks Grok!
