Need Somebody to sync carbs in Chicago

I dont know if this is the right section or not but im looking for somebody in the chicago area to sync my carbs for me. I recently got the bike and am doing some basic maintenance. I have extensive automotive knowledge but for the life of me cannot figure this out.

you need a special tool to sync carbs.

i believe there are people on the board that might be able to help you come spring when it warms up a little. sometimes offering a meal / beer will bring people out of the wood work.

However, in these tough times, offering people money on the side might not hurt.

This is what I use(d). Pretty cheap now too, ~$80. Buy the tool and do it yourself. Depending on mileage, should probably be checked/adjusted at least once a year.
