I need the mechanics' opinions. My Gen2 700 is runnin' strange, idling rough and hesitating on take off. I need to know which is the better (and cheaper) route, carb sync or valve job. I'd heard valve jobs on the gen2's are a pain in the neck, and I have a buddy who has a carb sync kit. He says he talked to some forum folks and they told him specifically NOT to do my carb sync until my valves had been adjusted; I think he made that up.
So what do you guys think? Get the carbs sync'd, or pay someone to do the valve job (cuz I'm pretty much NOT a mechanic)
