The service manual explains how to do it. You should be able to find the service manual on this site. I also made a home made one last year and have some photos during the sync:

Home made throttle body sync tool

I have since bought some vacuum gauges.

The Motion Pro one is the bomb. Tried a number of home made ones over the years and they all sucked compared to the Motion Pro one.

It definitely makes it easy. And I like the fact that you can sync the actual gauges to make sure they are accurate when doin the sync

You don't need that. Just use the tach on the bike. When you adjust cyl 2&3 the idle will go down. Just turn the idle back up and then adjust 1&4

I'm the guy who wants to do things as accurate as possible if I can. So I do need it just as I decided to use vacuum gauges to set my throttle bodies

If you want it as accurate as possible you won't use vacuum gauges. You will get much more accurate balance by using on of the Motion Pro style manometers. I've had a set of vacuum gauges and they sucked for doing this work. Very hard to match needles on separate gauges up. Much, much easier to get the liquid in the tubes to the same height.

I just feel a little better with gauges I calibrate and set machinery off gauges all the time at work. To each their own

Attempted to do a sync on mine today but god it was way off!!!
Anyway, service manual refers to 1-2 / 3-4 equalizing screw



All i could find was this, which is spring loaded and if you push it down, i think it moves the primary butterflies.



Is this the one?
