Re: Synchin TB and now popping?

Thanks to Jim in FL, mentioning my major flaw in the previous post  -  
it's a 1999 R1100RT.  I just put the Vac gages back on an one had hardly 
any vacuum and the other about 8 inches?    The bike was popping almost 
like a backfire.  I loosened all the cables and hooked up the gages 
again and got it spot on and slowly tightened up all the cables.  The 
bike seems to be running good right now, however I haven't taken it for 
a spin around the block.  The idle is about 750 so I'll need to raise 
that up a bit.  I also just removed the gas cannister and left the lines 
from one carb to the other hooked up which shouldn't make any difference 
in normal operation (I don't think).  I'll see how it runs later after 
it cools off a bit.

Thanks for the help and comments,
