yes it is a easy thing to do.one carb at a time. first make sure all slack is out of your cables to both carbs. then take one carb turn everything in to bottom out and count how many turns it took then turn out that many for your idle and pilot. then do the same with the other carb using the numbers you used from the first carb. then start it and fine tune it making sure when you turn something on one you do the same on the other. that should get your carbs pretty much insync as long as you have the slide cables adjusted right. or pick up a manual it will tell you the specs.

If you have TM carbs, then I believe the carbs are automatically synched and you have no worries.

Just remember, throttle's on the right.

I'm not an expect in this, but to really sync the carbs you need a guage to measure vacuum also known as carb synchronometers? I think that's the best way to ensure they are perfectly synced.
