Throttle body balance

When balancing the throttle bodies should the air bypass screws be open one full turn, Or closed when balancing and opened one turn when finished balancing?

The manual says to balance with them closed. 

I finally went with the theory that balancing at "some rpm" (like 3000) it's fine to leave them open then use them to make the final balance at idle, if necessary.

Of course my theories have been lacking before . . . :whistle:

As  frustrating and maddening as the TPS setting (and even a GuzziDiag connection) can be, throttle body balance on a V11 is a satisfying delight. Right up with pulling the feeler gauge through for the perfect valve clearances. :luigi: :sun:
