Your problem is probably the sycronizing as long as you havent messed with the fuel screw or jetting. If you dont have a set of vacuum guages you can eyeball the slides in the carbs to at least get you by and you can usually get them pretty close. Find the carb that is directly linked to the cable. the other carbs are adjustable to that carb so you need to make all the other carbs identical to that one. Look at the gap from the bottom of the slide to the bottom of the bore of the carb on that base carb with the throttle at idle bike not running. With the adjustments on the linkage to the other carbs adjust the other slides to the same height as that base carb as close as you can. Measure if possible to get all the carbs as close as possible to each other. you may have to adjust the idle after. If the adjustments on the carbs are all cables, for example there is a cable to each carb directly connected to the slide just adjust each cable accordingly and achieve the same as above. make sure you have a little freeplay at the throttle when you are done. you can adjust that by the cable adjustment by the throttle which will keep all the carbs in sync

The motor oil lubricates both the engine and the transmission.
only a JASO MA
certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and
will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Shell
Rotella T Synthetic (15w-40 about $22) and Shell Rotella standard oil ($12 a gallon) for diesel engines , both are JASO MA
rated for motorcycles.10w-40
oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic
oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. For the engine you will probably need between 3 and four quarts
of oil, an oil filter,and a drain plug washer . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level by placing your
motorcycle on the center standard looking at looking at the dip stick. Run the motor to circulate the oil, recheck the level, and top up as
If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading.
