I say anytime you have the tank off, go for it, I sure will be. Once the tank is off it takes a matter of five minutes to do the sync. The 99 should be the same deal, according to my Haynes manual.

As for me, the bike was running just fine aside from vibes at speed, but I do notice that it idles much more smoothly after adjustment.

Did my 24k service last weekend including throttle body sync. Idle is much improved as is throttle response. Since I did not have the Triumph digital vac tool or a mercury column, I used a UniSyn tool from my old VW Weber carb days. The UniSyn is placed over each throttle body opening individually (cap off the vac ports used with merc column ) and a floating pill measures base idle air flow by rising in a small glass tube. Get the pill to rise the same for each throttle and your there. Worked for me.

Any suggestions on how to hook up the fuel tank and where to position it on a 99 sprint with FI. Do I need to hook up the red fuel return connector?
