Throttle Body Syncronization?

So I searched a little and couldn't find any information on this. I don't see anywhere in the service manual that it mentions syncronizing the throttle bodies on the RC. Is it possible and/or necessary to do on this bike?

Thanks,

Todd

You dont need to sync them, they are set at the factory and should never need adjustment.I dont even bother to sync the starter valves.

Don't even try it... The calibration on most sync gauges is actually more incorrect than the throttle bodies would ever be.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I guess that cool Morgan Carb-Tune I bought a couple years ago will continue to collect dust. It wasn't necessary on my CBR either.
