never carb sync'd b4

So, sorry in advance for the embarassingly simple question, but im still new to riding. I am mechanically inclined, but I have never done a carb sync before. I understand the tools and technique, I just dont know where to hook up the vacuum lines or where the ajustment screws are. Pics would be great if you have any.

I tried a search, but couldn't find a basic how-to on here.

DrGT, when you do this, it would pay to leave a new vacuum line permanently connected to the front carb, because it is difficult to access easily. I ran a line up to the back of the tank, and then capped it off. I also put a "T" into the vacuum line that normally connects to the vacuum petcock, and ran that to the same location. Both of these lines need to be plugged when not in use. Now I can do a carb synch simply by pulling off the seat and connecting my vacuum gauges to these lines.

Thanks for the advice cabury. Seems carb syncs are very common place, so ease of access is a great thing.

I set it up as instructed, but did the two bottle method and on start-up both bottles collapsed. Am I doing something wrong?

You cannot use thin plastic drinking water bottles. I'd recommend a couple glass bottles at best, or at least a couple plastic Gatorade bottles (this is what I use).
