Synchronisation on R1200RT?


Recommended Posts

Synchronisation of throttle body valves, etc... for a more even pull for smoother engine.


* Does this really need to be done very often?

* Has anyone ever noticed any difference after having it done?

* Is it possible to do it yourself? We did it on a VSTROM but have not heard of specifics on doing it on an R1200RT.

You can only do the high RPM(3500-4000) synch on the new 1200's.

The low RPM is taken care of by a stepper unit,and can only be adjusted by the fancy big bucks BMW diagnostic computer.

Not sure how you define "very often," but every 6K or so is not unusual.


Yes, on a boxer, any boxer, it makes a big difference.


As mentioned the only DIYer adjustment we have available to us is above idle sync by adjusting the right throttle body cable.
