After a year of not being so well, (back surgery, blood-clots, recurring blood-clots, staph infection, lung scaring..) I'm finally getting back on track, and have found some energy. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let's hope it isn't 'those' lights, or an oncoming train.
I've made some progress on the Bimota YB8, It is now running, and the seat unit will be going on tonight. I just have to change the front subframe, because the one on it is not correct, and chuck the fairings on, and it can go to it's new (very patient buyers home).
Balancing the carbs on the YB's is virtually impossible, because the beam behind the carbs blocks access to the adjustment screws.
In the past I would just used a Yamaha FZR1000 or the like, but didn't have one here atm. I can't recommend the Morgan Carbtune 2 carb balancing tool highly enough. It is a sensationally thought out and engineered product. https://www.carbtune.com/
So an industrial vacuum cleaner some plumbing fittings and and radiator hose. The industrial vacuum only just pulled enough volume for this to work, however, I intend to use a mains power weed blower in reverse to solve the problem.
I know this system will not take into account an engine that has wildly differing compression, but in this case with a healthy engine with compression within 5 psi it achieved the goal, and the motor runs sweet!
