On the carb syncing, hook up the throttle cable, take off the air cleaner and look into the intake to see if the slides appear to be the same height at idle (zero throttle), if not adjust idle so they are the same, then start it and adjust both idle screws evenly to get the desired idle RPM. Also the slides need to begin to move together at the same exact time when you begin pressing/twisting the throttle. Usually when your cable adjustment is out of sink you can hear the slides make 2 clunking noises when they close instead of one. Use the cable adjustment at the top of the carb to take the slack out of the cable on the carb slide that comes up late.
Typically on my stock carbs with TORS I never had to sync the carbs in slide idle height or cable pull even after taking the carb tops and slides off many times. They went back together the same as they came off, in sync. But, if you just put a new cable on then you will need to sync the carbs.

Not sure, but I thought float height for stock carbs is 20 - 22 mm's from the carb WITHOUT the gasket. If thats the case, 15 - 17 mm's from the gasket seating surface would mean the gasket would have to be 5mm thick.
