    That's one heck of a carburetor to cut your teeth on! Really nice work.

    The relevant discussion (in a pretty disjointed thread) is on page 7 here: https://vfrworld.com/threads/matt-tries-–-1984-vf500f-overhaul.57900/page-7

    Cheers for all the feedback, and for pointing me in the direction of instructions on how to bench sync, much appreciated.

    Head off, ready for valve lapping (notice not all the head gasket wanted to come with the head) Cylinder on the left is the one that had low compression and wasn't firing:

    A first pass with the coarse grinding paste (before and after), a marked improvement already: IMG_20210418_183908_708.jpg

    As a side note, its when you look at someones profile picture and think "I recognise that bike" then realise Colddevil is the guy you've been watching on youtube for months for tips! (Exhaust collector box removal for one) cheers mate, great videos.
