I'll probably regret this - but I'll bite: what is the popsicle stick method?

I have a feeling it is similar to how an old manual I had for a Honda twin said to feel the pulses from each muffler and adjust to make them even

Bikes for Sale / 1992 Yamaha FJ1200
Last post by conkeyro - July 21, 2024, 07:22:28 PM
I purchased this Yamaha as my 2022/2023 winter project. I went through it entirely and drove it all last summer. This winter I took care of some cosmetic issues and it is not time to sell it on. The refresh included new tires, rear shock (YSS), rebuilt forks with improved dampers (RPM), all fluids replaced, new brake pads and braided lines, front fork brace, ceramic coated headers and repainted belly pan. I'm sure I forgot somethings. The bike runs very strong, and is incredibly comfortable on the highway but is a little in the heavy side. If you are not used to a large bike it will take some adjustment until you are comfortable on it. 35K Miles  $4000 firm.   I can deliver within 100 miles if you give me a ride home.  More pictures on request.

Maintenance / Fj Carb Sync Question.
Last post by Lloyd Van Duzen - July 21, 2024, 03:52:11 PM
Ok, so at some point down the road I plan on doing a carb sync on one of my 84 Fj 1100's. My question is can you, or is it a viable alternative to use the "pop sickle stick" method of syncing the four carbs on these bikes?  I have had success with this on 2 cycle, twin engine sled's. I'm wondering what other owners think.  I do have a manual describing the procedure to use ultimately. Thanks for any input.

Quote from: Pat Conlon on July 21, 2024, 03:03:43 PMIt's going to be expensive to ship from Canada. If there are on dents or scratches I would suggest $250-300 USD plus shipping. Shipping alone will be another $100

The two down pipes are slightly pushed in on the bottom, one very small dimple on the muffler otherwise in good condition

My clearance there isn't to bad. It's around the collector that is really off.
From talking to them the pipes are suppose to be installed 1-4 from the left sitting on the bike.
It would have been nice to have instructions included to tell you this..

Parts Available and/or For Sale / Supertrapp 4-1
Last post by Rjack6811 - July 21, 2024, 10:27:44 AM
What would you consider a fair asking price for a 4-1 stainless supertrapp exhaust. Purchased the bike with it installed but I would like to go another route. Looking to use the proceeds to help pay for a different system. I'm just not sure what the value is in the supertrapp. Looking for advice, thanks.
