Due to a few requests on my Youtube channel, coupled with a lack of a sticky/central thread on here, I took an hour on rainy Saturday and made this video showing how to balance or synchronise the throttles on the Rocket III.
Hopefully it will be of some use.
So I just got TuneECU working after recieving my Lonetec cable. I just got this bike 2 weeks ago. It has an intermittent high idle issue and some popping on idle as well.
This is what I found upon connecting TuneECU.. Could this be causing my issues:
Playing with my new Tunecu I have found the throttles on the 05 to be out of balance. Cylinders 2 & 3 are dead even at 640 but #1 is only at 560 . Should I figure what's up with #1 before try to match #2&3? TIA
Buy a new engine ?
I'm in the process of putting the bike back together after changing out the cams.
Go to torque down the throttle body adapter boots (pair of 8mm flange bolts to each) to the manual-stated 12 Nm, and broke the head off one of the bolts, about 3 mm into the block.

I have many times balanced the throttle bodies on R3's, without the stock air box its pretty easy while using Tune ECU. No problems with this.
From reading other threads I know that the vacuum hoses crack with age and may need replacing. I'm also OK with...

I have read over the thread on balancing throttle bodies and it was fairly well explained. I did have a question which is to follow later.....
So I hooked up TuneECU today to see if I needed to try and balance my throttle bodies. Basically, 1 & 2 are pretty close (in spite of the screen...
Today I replaced the throttle cables, while the filter was off I started the engine to test the cable. When I turned the engine off I had white smoke emanating from the front throttle body. Any ideas? Should I be concerned. I think fuel use has increased recently but no hard evadance.
Brahma is home from the hospital. 3.5 weeks of not being ridden has taken an emotional toll on the stalwart though. He is happy to be on the road once more though but not yet back to full health. Here is the breakdown:
Last fall, I noticed that the idle was high even after riding for 30 minutes...
