Mark, Finally got to tune the bike using the Harmonizer. Started with the TwinMax and dialed in to what it said was "zero" (approximately average with the needle bouncing between -1/+1. Then I put the Harmonizer on line, and within seconds had it down to zero, which was slightly different from the TwinMax and much more precise. Love having the rpm right on the readout. Thanks! Tim

Hi-This is my first post to a very informative thread. I am still learning about the Harmonizer and would like to know when/if I might be able to purchase one. Does any one have one in the SE Michigan area?

I took my harmonizer to an 'Airhead' weekend over here in the UK. Sorry to PW who had brought his carbtune sticks with him... did they even come out of the bag?

The idea was a weekend for airhead riders to get together and share knowledge and skills in a private garage and have some cracking food and play on some bikes. Having only ever owned oilheads (I know... I'm getting smarter as I get older!) I had no idea how to properly tune carbs. Two very kind gentlemen taught me about setting up carbs and the harmonizer was a great tool to help me make sense of what all of those little screws and cables were for. Following my lesson, carbs were adjusted on every bike in attendance... all bar one being quite a ways from perfect! Another great feature was that, as some bike were way way out of balance, the harmonizer... I'm guessing... changes the scale so that you can still see which side of line you are on whilst the digital readout tells you by how many mbars (I may be making that up but thats how it works in my head!); basically telling to you only turn the cable a wee bit, or twist it like you're rolling a cigarette! One gets a much better idea than on a maxed out needle reading or having oil sucked into your engine!

Nearly everyone left with a bike that ticked over very nicely and all vibrations were gone. What was also apparent was that some throttle cables needed to be replaced as there was no way to adjust them to be perfectly balanced (cables were too stretched).. though they were much closer when we had finished with them. An added bonus I guess.

I'd say on average, we got it down to about 2 minutes or less per bike. You can see the first lot of bikes brought into the garage ready to be 'tuned'. Around the corner (behind the wall on the right in the photo) there were three bikes being worked on... two on lovely big lifts. The first bike, where I was to receive my tuition was the black r100GSpd (you can just see the pannier) followed by my white r80 g/s. Slowly but surely the rest of the bikes crept in until the garage was full. By the end of it we were worried that the harmonizer's batteries would be dead as bikes were coming in as fast as they could be tuned. It was a great way to learn and I think everyone was pleased to have their bikes running smoother. Thanks for a good product at a great price.

The only negative comment I heard was someone saying that they though they wasted money on a twinmax or similar... and for improvments... it would be nice if it came with some ice cream!

Been meaning to chime in here for a while, Grok...

To put it simply and succinctly - IMHO your "Harmonizer" is without question the very best twin-cylinder carb/throttle-body balancing tool ever produced. Accurate, consistent, easy-to-use, made of high-quality materials with the highest levels of workmanship... compact, lightweight, etc., etc.... Literally so damn good it doesn't even need instructions.

What more could you ask for?

Oh, I know... The four-cylinder model you keep promising us!!!

As I have said before, sign me up for one of those just as soon as they are ready!

Thanks for making one of the most favorite tools I have in my tool box.

Any updates on availability? I disposed of my Hg based manometer a while back. Since buying a used GS I've been patiently waiting for the expected 4-6 weeks for these to become available. Any ideas as to the current lead time?

I tried out a Harmonizer at a rally a couple of weeks ago and loved it. I'm ready to start making changes to my carbs, and went to go buy a Harmonizer - and discovered this thread! ACK! Had I known when I tried it that I couldn't buy it, I probably wouldn't have tried it. Now I WANT it and can't get it!

I really don't want to have to buy a Twinmax after using the Harmonizer...

I want to add a +1 to the list of interested folks who would love to order one if they become available soon.

(And if any of you happy Harmonizer customers are willing to part with yours, PM me! My window for buying is a short couple of weeks!)
