Throttle Sync


Recommended Posts

I am borrowing a carb sync tool and want to know the procedure with my R1200 RT (06). The shop DVD says that the BMW tool stops the idle adjustment.Can they be synced without that tool? Thanks for all responses.

You can sync your TB's off idle, but start by checking the valve clearances first. Then sync the TB's to perfection at the rpm you cruise at the majority of the time. She'll purr like a kitten.


As you know, you cannot set the idle without the help of your service manager.


If this is your first time I'd suggest you find some help to walk you through the steps.

I am going to have the owner of the sync tool help me but I wanted to be sure I did not have to have the BMW diagnostic tool to do this!
