Default Decent carb sync tool

Was going to take a bike I just got running to a shop to get the carbs synced as I have no use generally for a sync tool since I mostly ride and work on Harleys. However, looks like I can get a sync tool for about $70 which seems like it would be less than the cost of one sync. Just wondering if there are recommendations as to which tool is the best option. Here are the first three that popped up on Amazon but I know nothing about them. Since I know nothing I'd appreciate a bit of input as to which direction I should go. I don't mind spending money for a better tool but only if it is worth it.

Option one AlphaMoto Option one AlphaMoto

Option two XMTMoto Option two XMTMoto

Option three Carbtune Pro (digital for about twice the cash) Option three Carbtune Pro (digital for about twice the cash)

Your 1st link is broken. It takes you to a dead Walmart page.

I have a set like your 2nd option but was made by Motion Pro. I've only had great experiences with it. Do not have a single complaint.
The wide footprint allows you to sit them up near the bars nicely without worrying about them falling.

FWIW, I prefer analog over digital for stuff like this. To me, analog reacts better to the tiny tweaks you make while syncing. Others could disagree with that, but to each his own.

Well that's weird. The link starts with "amazon.com". No idea what happened there.

Thanks for the advice.

I have the one in link 3, the Carbtune Pro.

It's a good piece of kit, does the job well, but costs more.

I bought mine off E-Bay, was just like new, but half the price. Worth taking a look, you might get lucky.
