For a few quid i've built myself a Manometer/carb balancer similar to the one in video. (Sorry but could not get it to focus for love or money) The piece of paper is for the photo's sake and will be replaced with something more permanent and with graduation lines on it.
Image
It's extremely sensitive; if you look closely you'l notice the levels are slightly different, this is due to plugging the ends (for storage)
Image
If you could stick the storage plugs (pop rivets) in at exactly the same time the levels would remain the same, however the levels immediately even out once the plugs are removed.

To connect the air lines to the bike, for ease of use and a good seal; i'l be using rubber vacuum tube.
Image
Using a straight and short length of rubber vacuum tube.

There's no vacuum take off nipple for cylinder one...
Image
So have purchased a pair of these
Image
They come with a sealing washer and fit perfectly.

That's it and already to use... not tried it yet but will report back when i do.

Will be keeping an eye on this. Have been thinking of doing this for a while now.

Im guessing the nipple you've put on Carb 1 will be coming off once the balancing is done?

Would you guys say it's necessary to do balance the carbs if the bike runs good and starts well? Just finished changing jets and all of that but I don't own a tool myself.
