The left one is in the normal range, but the right one is only < out. Not
that it makes much difference if it is in or like that; sync does not seem
to be affected much. Which would suggest there is some air leaking
somewhere. Still need to spray some to verify.
I can feel some play in the butterfly shaft if I hold the pulley and wiggle
it up and down. I guess I am looking at a new tb, at some point at least.
Bike has 35,000 miles on the clock btw.

Yes, there is.

Idle while riding in 45F weather today for about 100 miles was about
1000-1100, which seems ok. I guess the motor was getting a little hot from
fiddling around and adjusting yesterday without airflow and consequently
running a little faster idle.

All: thanks for the replies so far both on and off list. This list rocks.
