Grok -

Just a note to let you know the Ural has never run better! Did some tweaking this weekend and tuned it up once again using the Harmonizer. Really like being able to use the gauge feature first to tune each carb individually before balancing them together. After that, a sweet 100km ride through the fall -

Great device. Thanks for putting it together.

It seems like it'd be cheaper to run one cylinder at a time at the same throttle position and use the tach or even the speedometer as a gauge while you adjust the carbs. Then you get a balanced total output rather than a balanced input of one component of combustion.
It's how I do it on my boxers. It's how it's been done since motorized vehicles were invented.

Works for Airheads
I wouldn't try that on fuel injected oilheads

Just wondering...

These comments above have what, exactly, to do with a thread titled "Harmonizer Vacuum Multi-Tool -- It ain't your Daddy's Twinmax"???

Certainly there are many ways to skin a cat, but some are more accurate, reliable, and consistently repeatable than others...

Discussing the merits of one method over another can get off into the weeds rather quickly.

There is a more appropriate thread on the plug shorting method here:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=623553

If you think the Harmonizer is a waste of money, then don't buy one

I would hazard a guess that the only thing you'll find in this thread is hundreds of satisfied customers that disagree!

Tried the rest

Looking forward to using the Harmonizer.

Syncing the throttle bodies on my 1150GS is maintenance practise I employ very often because it is easy to do and it satisfies my curiousity about the bike's state of tune. My personal state of tune is another matter.

Regards,

John Z.

Reviews read... order placed.

Looking forward to working with your harmonizer on my O6 Ural GearUp.

Thanks

I'm financially embarrassed at the moment, I can only hope the adult kids follow my link for the Christmas present...
Otherwise I'll be ordering this spring when I can actually use it up here in the Star Du Nord state

I ordered mine on Saturday.
dc

And apparently received it today. As I have a notice from the post office that they have a package for me from Folsom.
Amazing speed on the order filling and delivery.

I saw a link to this thread on the AccessNorton forum and as soon as I saw this tool I had to have one. I ordered it Monday night and got it in Thursday's mail. I have not used it on my Norton yet but it looks great. It is ridiculously simple to operate - one button. I'm an electrical engineer involved in manufacturing oddball electrostatics instruments and I have to say this is one nice piece of work! You got this one right. Now, after that, hopefully it will work well too. I will let you know if it doesn't... heh heh.

Thanks!

Russ

Thanks for the feedback - always nice when a fellow geek likes it!

I think you'll find it works well, although there isn't any magic setting to get those Amals to behave themselves
