So awhile ago I noticed that I was having some idle problems. I checked my throttle bodies and they weren't in sync. Cylinder 2 was off, pretty far, I think it was off by about 60 relative to the other two so I tried to fix it so the bike would run better til I could get it to the shop. No go, had to rough ride it down there.
So I took it to the dealer. They couldn't sync them either but they were "within spec". Whatever the hell that means. The manual says, using their tool to adjust the TBs until it says "synced". If they were within spec then I would imagine the tool would say synched. What a load of bull. The bike did run more smoothly after they f'd with it.
I was still suspicious as to there being a problem. I bought a manual and proceeded to remove the throttle body so I could see for myself.
Here are a couple pics:
I'm not sure what is causing this. The TBs smell of fuel, a lot and even seem to have some in the cylinders up near the seal. I am not sure if that is normal. So what direction can I go now? What is the best way to clean these and what are potential causes?
I think I'll pop the plugs out and see what they look like as well.
I should add that my bike doesn't smoke or anything that. It does smell, uhh sweet maybe? after turning it off. Am I too rich?
