Assume the best

Here we will deal with any specific problems related to your bike model. We will also highlight other sites that give instructions on how to use the Carbtune with specific models.

Carbtune II will balance the carburetors on virtually any Honda motorcycle, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, BMW, Triumph, Ducati, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Laverda and any other 4-stroke bike.

It will also easily and accurately sync the throttles on fuel injection bodies, 4-stroke outboards and snowmobiles. It is also used on high performance motor cars.

The Carbtune will work on virtually any motorcycle with more than one cylinder. The models below are just a few examples. If your bike is not listed just search google for your bike model name followed by Carbtune. For example "CBR900 Carbtune"

Alfa Romeo

See  video here

Aprilia RXV

See  instructions on these models


R-series BMWs can have readings lower than 8cmHg, so it will be off the scale. To get a reading below 8cmHg remove the plastic cable clip from the top cap and insert it in the bottom cap. Hang the Carbtune II upside-down. Ignore the scale figures. Zero will now be around 17cmHg on the scale but the full width red graduations will still be 2cmHg.
