Canít get carbs to sync

See video below. Carbs wonít sync properly. Jumpy vacuum without touching the adjuster.

Bike has always had issues with an erratic idle. Adjusted the valves last winter. Bike has not been sitting. Pilots turned out 2.5 turns. Hesitates off of acceleration. Should I try a carb soak/cleaning? Iíve cleaned these last winter as well. Been riding since without sitting.

Adjust the valves if you have not. Check the condition and tightness of the manifolds.

I finally figured out why I like Ducatis: With their exhaust note and dry clutch, they sound almost like a Guzzi!
