What does a carburetor synchronizer do?
On bikes that have more than one cylinder, synchronizing the carburetors allows the cylinders to work in unison as the throttle is opened, thus allowing all cylinders to operate with the same output (some V-twins use only one carburetor, so this is unnecessary). The engine therefore operates smoothly and efficiently.
