I wasn't going to do valves and a balance because it was running so well but decided to anyways.

After adjusting the valves I hooked up the Harmonizer and went for a ride to get it warmed up. As expected at 4500 rpm, my normal rpm cruise it was only out by 20 to 25, smily faces but it was erratic sometimes 11 sometimes 25 so I figured I could do better.

I went back to square one using the gauge mode to just get a rise at idle and then backing off a full turn as per JVB on each side. Then adjusted to 3500 rpm for a close balance.

Went for a ride with the Harmonizer hooked up and made some final adjustments at 4500. Now I am 0 to +3 at 3500 all the way to 5000 rpm and at various gear and speed configurations. I have smily face and I'm smiling too. Great product.
I wanted to quote this so it shows up twice in the thread
Many thanks for the feedback!
-Mark

Hey Grok - I just started a Harmonizer thread over in Old's Cool this morning and there is starting to be some activity. Come on over and have a look - it might interest you.

Any idea of how much?

Am still interested in the 4 cylinder version which is now 1st quarter 2012 delivery if I have read correctly.
Are you at the point you can estimate the cost difference between the 2 versions or...? And have you started a waiting list for the 4 cylinder unit?
Thanks,
Bill

The 4-cylinder version will likely be about 40-50% more expensive. The design isn't finalized yet so I can't nail it down.

I don't have a waiting list for it yet. I thought it prudent to get it working first

Even at twice as expensive it would still be a deal.

I balanced my CB650SC with the Harmonizer and the amount of hassle involved in switching hoses around more than justifies the cost of a 4 port unit.

The twin-cylinder "Harmonizer" is such a splendid and elegant solution - one of the best and most satisfying tool purchases I have ever made - that I plan to immediately purchase your four-cylinder model as soon as you have them ready.

I can't wait, and as mentioned even if it was twice as expensive it would be a bargain.

Sounds good. I will check in a month or so from now and see how it is going.
And if you do start a waiting list - please send me a PM.
Thanks,
Bill
