Throttle Body Sync with Harmonizer sync tool
« on: September 02, 2011, 09:45:20 pm »
I decided to order the Harmonizer Sync Tool to replace my trusty homemade manometer that I have used for years.  I had just done a sync using my manometer a few days ago so this was a nice test to see the accuracy of that unit compared to the Harmonizer.

I will assume that you know the process for a TBS.  If not, the steps are outlined in the service manual and are pretty straightforward. 

Using the pigtails that I mentioned in the TBS / Airscrew thread that is stickied in the Technical area, I was able to hook up the Harmonizer without even having to lift the tank or remove the side panels. 

Here is a link to that thread if you have not already seen it:
http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/index.php?topic=1973.0

I just pull the tube on the left side and the cap on the right side and with long needle-noce pliers, connect the pigtails to the ports.

I ran the bike up to 140F before making these connections and then turned it off for the next steps.

The Harmonizer has two ports on the bottom and two 5/32 ID rubber tubes with connectors at one end.  Place the connector end of the tubes on the Harmonizer ports and the other ends of the tubes to the pigtails.

Next, with the bike off, press the red button on the Harmonizer and it goes into calibration mode.  It will then tell you to start the bike.

Here it is after calibration.


As I mentioned, I had synced a few days ago with my manometer.  It was off by .006 m/bar according to the Harmonizer.


Now, here is a nice trick to make adjustments to the airscrews without having to lift the tank.  I found this small screwdriver set with flexible attachment at Harbor Frieght.  It allows me to make the adjustment without lifting the tank.


This is how it was setup for the adjustment.


To get to the perfect setup, I had to open the left airscrew approximately 1/10 of a turn to go from .006m/bar to .000m/bar.  Keep in mind, even at .006m/bar, I still had the happy face on the Hartmonizer so this is a small adjustment.
Here is after the adjustment.


I am very impressed with the ease of use of the Harmonizer and the ability to check the sync with the setup that I have described here and in the other thread.  Give this a shot, as it is easy to do and makes a huge difference if your bike is in need of the adjustment.

The Harmonizer makes syncing the TBs as easy as it can be. Mark came over yesterday and we setup the pigtails and sync'd the TBs. simple setup and inexpensive. The Harmonizer is priced well and will be in my toolbox for years to come.

Note: the Harmonizer can go camping with you. Look at Speed's photo. On the right side there is an LED and it can be used as a flashlight or beacon to find your tent.  :lamp:

It has two ports. It is set up for a twin. They are talking about doing one for a four cylinder.
I guess you can do a four with this one by syncing A to B, A to C and A to D. Somebody posted that on AdvRider.

Devin,

Do you use the hoses supplied with the Harmonizer or is another size required? I just received my Harmonizer and have yet to attempt the TBS. I have read the large "Airscrew Adjustment.." thread and need to go back and pull out facts, hints and tips.

Thanks,
Neil

I used the provided hose though purchased a smaller ID hose and adapted it to the provided hose with brass connectors. Make the total length of the hoses the same.

Do yourself a favor and check how many turns the Airscrew is set at before you reset it. Might help with with future considerations.

Hey Devin,

Where are we ordering these units from? Is there a web site?

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks, Jim.

It's on its way.

Good to hear that.. You will really like dealing with Grok, and the shipping is fast. I had a problem with the first one I purchased,  he sent a new one that day, and let me ship the old one back in the same box..
The new one has worked great..
