I would apologize for derailing this thread, but it would be disingenuous since I have done it SO many times that nobody would believe me.

So first...........
I don't know how often you should sync your throttle bodies. But more than once a new sync resulted in an unexpected  substantial improvement.
Drives me nuts that I didn't sense the gradual degradation.

Blitz, such a nice thing to say. It's all down hill from now though. Too much pressure. :)

Yes, I wear a helmet. In fact, I dress to crash! ATGATT.

Since you enjoyed.........so, My youngest son is a country sheriff deputy. My daughter has pleaded with her little brother to "do something about it James. Give him a ticket or something. That has to be against some law"

I look at her. Then look up at him. (He's a BIG Boy) He hesitates and asks "dad, that thing does have a license plate right?"
I nod with the biggest grin and say "yep! and I have insurance on it too officer. wanna see it?"

Ain't life grand?

Life IS grand, and you make it better with every post.  It's good to have THE MAN (and your son) on your side. 

You've raised a fine  family, AND inspired me to double check my carb synch.  I bought a new motion pro tool for my daughter's 1982 suzuki GS650 ($200 craigslist find) a few months back, so i'll use it on the super 10 this weekend.

Thanks for brightening my day.

Thanks for the sync info!

If and when I get a chance, I'll try to move the Gen2 posts from this thread to that one.


Thanks!

 A bit of help please.
I did the air screw adjustment and throttle sync last week and was over the moon with the results.
I set out on a 450mile up to the Scottish borders three days since and it was running perfectly, however over the three days it has started to stutter again and has deteriorated to the point where it now stalls at junctions.
Any ideas, can someone point me in the right direction?

The caps which plug the throttle body ports can crack or get loose. The description seems to fit so I'd start there.

My first thoughts, but a quick look under the tank on my return home and both look well.
Do the air screws ever move, unlikely I know but I want to eliminate things I may have caused by last week's adjustments

I've never seen the air screws move on their own.

Since the problem started and got worse over a course of days, from what was an acceptable running cycle to begin with (I think that's true, but you don't state it), it's something you did to change it.

It reads like you've got a vacuum leak now. Find That. Look at the things you've touched.

How's the idle speed? Check the left side TB cap. Could be cracked. If the gas tank vent hoses got pinched it will cause the fuel to struggle past the pump.
