Throttle Body Syncing
Anybody have an opinion on syncing the throttle bodies in conjunction with a valve adjustment on CBRs? I came across several posts on CBRF recommending syncing when adjusting valves(and several others that say to just button it up after the valve adj.), but its not even mentioned in the shop manual. I'll be wrapping up the valve adjustment on my 02 F4i in the next couple days as soon as i track down the shims.
The bike has 30,500. As far as I know, it hasnt had its first valve inspection at the recommended 16k, but only 4 intakes were out of spec. All else, including the exhausts where dead on. I'll also be replacing the air filter and plugs while I'm in there anyway. I really dont want to spend the coin on a gauge I'll rarely use, but if I have to, nows the time I guess.
Oh, in case, the valves are being adjusted as par of the service interval, all else is just preventative. The bike runs like a champ with no vibration or performance issues.
