Whats the procedure to set all carbs at the same idle? After carb cleaning the idle was a little high so got it down to 2000 but the idle screws are in all different places. does a manometer work on the roundslide carbs?

when i put my motor back in:D
i set mine at 1900.
the idle screws were at different turns so
i adjusted while running to get all three as
close as poss at that rpm.
it did take a bit of fiddleing around but
finally got it. dint give up.

Patience is key, it took me about 2 weeks of riding and resetting to get the right idle speed on my dads xlt before it was in the sweet spot, but unfortunatly 2 days later i hit a ditch and put the right ski under the sled and had the trailing arm bent 90 degrees babk under the sled :/

i had my son stand on a chair so he could see
the tack with the hood up.
he let me know when i was at 2k.
just kept adjusting screws till they were
as close as poss at 1900.
it did take a while to do.

thats how i did mine. dont know of any special tool??
there might be a tool? im sure someone will chime in.
