I wish I could find my manual so I could tell you. But the balancer is actually a counterbalance which counteracts the way the crank torques the engine. Don't know the specifics about how it works though, and I don't want to be one of those unreliable list mechanics (Paul...;-))  so I'll shut up now.

<<I've never tried to adjust the balancer on the GPZ, but did it on my old '87 Connie. Made a huge difference in the vibes thru the bars. Different engine, yes, but most likely a very similar concept.>>

What is this balancer thing you speak of? I'v enever touched mine and maybe I should at least check it out. What page of the shop manual?
