Throttle body sync help!

O.K., going to sync the throttle bodies. Got the air box off, the crankcase vent blocked and the caps off the vacuum take-off, got the mercury stick hooked up (actually one of the Carbtune no mercury jobs) and . . . got vacuum on #1 and #3 but nothing on #2 and #4. Check the lines connected to #2 and #4 and they work on #1 and #3 so it ain't the guage. What's goin' on here. Tried the air bleed screw on #2 and it doesn't seem to affect the vacuum reading but does make it idle rough.

Any suggestions?

Yeah, the Carbtune sticks work great. You can order directly from there site and pay with a credit card and it will do the currency exchange. When I ordered from them they had it to my door from England in 3 days . . . unbelievable.

You will need 3' or so of 5/16" fuel line and a couple of hose clamps to rig the tank to work off the bike

I didn't do mine because I wasn't sure where the screws were, but I think canyon carver did his, I'd try to PM him.
