    1997 slt 780 carb linkage help

    I have fully rebuilt all 3 of my carbs and can't get them to all work in sync. With all 3 fully closed and linkage adjustment screws tightened just enough to remove all the play so center and mag respond to pto at 3/4 and wot the throttle plates are in different positions is this normal I was wondering maybe so due to they have different high speed adjustments. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    The preferred procedure in the service manual is to turn idle screw till you can get 1/8 inch drill bit shank snuggly between first throttle plate and carb body.
    Then adjust #2 carb and #3 carb the same way.

    That should take up slack in linkage. If not, try a larger drill bit. If still off, you probably have something wrong with linkages.
