Are there any sync tools out there other than motionpro?

I like to have a selection to choose from... And 80 bucks seems a little bit steep. Problem is, any time I search for them all I get are motionpro's tools.

I would like to get my hands on an older mercury one to be honest.

Is this a trick ques-tion? :headscratch

CarbTune Pro. But once you do your first TB sync, you'll be saying how cheap <$100 or <$80 really was, MotionPro, CarbTune, whatever.

No, it isn't a trick question, and not my first either. Why is it that everyone with a bike thinks you have to shell out for expensive,"name brand" stuff or its junk?


Anyways, I found this a few minutes ago. This is the same one we used on my bike today actually. Considering my personal experience, I highly recommend it.

Guess I answered my own question.

That being said, may be worth another 20 for a more durable unit. This one requires rather special care.

I guess so, didn't think those stuck out that much. I guess, the plastics aren't exactly wide.

You know that you can build one for a couple of bucks. I built a two-channel manometer using about 15 feet of 3/8's inch clear tubing, a yardstick (which I had laying around the house and a couple of adapters to fit the vacuum ports. The fluid was a combination of 2-stroke oil (blue in color) + a little gas to make it a little less viscous.

Here's a pic

Huh? What? I don't get it. :headscratch Was that in reference to my reply? Is CartTune Pro an expensive "name brand?" I didn't know that, but thanks for the cudos.

Love my CarbTune Pro. Cheapest "name brand" troubleshooting tool in my toolbox. :king :mfclap

I am fully aware of that. But a 3+ foot long tool is not in my best interests. I don't have a place to store something that size, and those home built ones have to be fairly large.

Not really at you specifically, but any time I even mention the idea of saving a few dollars people start talking shit like they think I am poor or something. Not poor, broke, whatever. I just learned a long time ago that if I can save 5 bucks then I have 5 dollars to spend on something else I want.

Its really my own greed more than being cheap lol
