I noticed a few things:
a) When you have one of the cylinders at exactly the right place it will move when you take the screwdriver off the adjusting screw.
b) Just because it was right a minute ago does not mean it will be right now.
c) From idle to 3000rpm the difference is so great you wonder how it ever ran.
d) The warmer the engine gets the more frustrating this job gets.
I "think " I finally got it good. I would have to adjust it a bit high so it would be good when I removed my screwdriver. When I put the bike in 1st gear (bike on center stand) and reved it to 3000 rpm the levels in the sync tool seemed to calm down a fair bit and were easier to adjust.
So the big question is: Shouldn't the bike be in gear under load to be able to accurately set the carbs?
