Balancing carbs – or fuel injection systems – makes for a smoother, more efficient engine. If your bike’s coughing and spluttering, or not idling smoothly, it’s essential to get it sorted. Race engineer and genius Mark Brewin at BSD.uk.com uses a Carbtune, so that was a good enough reason for me to choose the Irish company’s product. Old versions used mercury, but the latest Pro model has four tubes, each with a precisely machined steel rod. The vacuum from the carbs lifts these rods, giving you a reading to adjust to. Build quality is superb, and the customer service is second-to-none. A quick email or phone call with have any questions answered quickly.
I’d never attempted to balance my carbs before, believing it to be something of a black art. It’s not. The Carbtune Pro is simple and reliable, yet it costs less than the labour many dealers would charge to do the job for you. It comes with everything you need (except tools), and a storage pouch is available for just £12. Brilliant.
