I'm fairly sure my carbs arent synced very well...
when I ride it at about 1/4 throttle I can kinda only hear one cylinder running? Is it normal to have only one firing at different throttle positions? (I wouldnt think it is....) but at idle, its fine, above 1/4 it kinda seems to stop? idk...
my question is how do I sync my carbs or tell if they are out of sync

I have Nitrotates DIY banshee vid (the one posted), and it very helpful with everything on a shee.

But the best way is to buy a sync tool. The sync tool is MUCH easier and more accurate. Worth every cent, a must have banshee tool.

Might be something unless slides are way off. When looking at both carbs with filters off, is one slide higher than the other? I cannot stress enough how important a carb sync too is. I used to think I was dead on by eyeballing it.. Boy was I wrong!

thanks for the help guys, I've never had to do this before so I had no idea what to do.
the only thing that threw me off was I dont have any windows on the carbs since I have aftermarket PWK's. I lined em up as best as I could with my eyes and my friends. took it for a ride, held up better but I dont have an amazing tool set so the left locknut decided to come loose but ended up gettin it all figured out after two tries.
THANKS!

I dont have one, and it actually didnt fix the problem.... a friend told me to check my plugs and the right cylinder is running richer than the left. Left is pretty much chocolate and right is black. what do you guys make of that

If still need to sync you can borrow my sync tool. Does the pipe rev out and how do the reed petals look?

Go threw the carbs and clean them out good, as stated adjust the floats and inspect the reeds. Toss some new plugs in and do a plug chop

what about adjusting stuff? does it just go in then I'm done? I saw the last part in the vid that said make sure you got a little freeplay in the lever but is that it? Because I'd think the new "heavy duty" springs would make it a lil different

Stocker or aftermarket, you adjust the same.

Back to your jetting issue.. Were the plugs always reading that dark [rich] on both sides?
Switch the carbs around to see if problem moves to other cylinder, if not I would check those reed petals.
Definately make sure air screws are the same on both carbs & look for air leak. Compression the same on both cylinders?

no, 35mm PWK's. switched em around after trying my absolute best to eyeball the syncing, got it, works a LOT better now, no more single cylinder running at half throttle.
