Same height and depth, just about an inch wider :)

Took a whole day to get it, what took you so long?

Thanks for the quick shipping! Looking forward to using it.

WooHoo!!!! Just received mine!

Perfect timing as I just finished rebuilding the carbs on my '82 CB450SC last night. Now I just have to get the top end back together & I can try it out.

Maybe I'll try it out on my 'new to me' '02 R1150RT.

Hi Grok,
Had mine a time now and finally got around to having a go setting the bike up with your Harmonizer.
I am impressed with the build quality of the unit and how easy it is to use, my old unit ( tw## ###) was a pain
to use compared with this.

Thanks

JVB,

Have you made a video yet on how to use the Harmonizer??

Ordered Friday, arrived today. Outstanding.

I like the comprehensive instruction label, and the wide variety of the calibration/adjustment/operation button. Outstanding.

Opened the package, immediately pushed The Button. Took ten seconds to find the Flashlight mode another ten to find the menu mode and five to turn it off. Outstanding.

The vacuum takeoff fittings on my R60/5 are non-standard. There is no decent place to put them in the carburetor (Bing Type 53 slide-valves) so I have installed them in the intake port of the cylinder head. Consequently, the 5/32" brass nipples tend to run somewhat hot (never measured, but the heat is enough to soften clear "tygon"-type tubing. The hose in the Harmonizer is good to 275*F, but if this is not enough, I'll add a short section of silicone tubing between the supplied tubing and the nipple.

For years I've synched the carbs by the plug-shorting method and/or the #1 Calibrated Ear method. Added the vacuum takeoffs, tried a pair of vacuum meters, found that the TLAR method was as good and easier.

One question: about 3" from the carb-end of the hoses there is an internal connector in the hose. Wuddisit? Restrictor piece ( I did a suck/blow on the hose and it didn't seem that restricterly)?

Outstanding.

Hi Bill,
The internal connectors are indeed restrictors. They work in conjunction with the hose volume to "snub" peak pressure impulses. They protect the Harmonizer sensor from backfire, racing motors with large valve overlap, motors with damaged intake valves, and motors that have large vacuum orifices (> 1.5mm). You are right, they aren't very "restrictory". They are just enough to protect the sensor. They should remain in place, along with the hose length.

Thanks for the feedback!

P.S. What is the TLAR method?

Got mine and used it on a 1200gsa, 1150 gs and my 1100RT. I love it! Used to have a twin max but this product is way better.

Dan.

Thanks Dan,

Glad it arrived safe. You have the only one in Romania so far!
