Ok, but what about the .007" gap?
I just looked at the manual, and don't think you should worry about the .007 gap....just synch the throttles, then set the idle speed where it belongs. THEN check to make sure your throttle isn't sitting on the stop screw...which it most likely won't. The .007 spec isn't critical....they're just wanting it to NOT be on the screw and have some clearance. Someone then asks 'what should the 'almost touching' clearance be?' So they gave it a number. .007. Maybe someone was a James Bond fan?:)

Seriously, just synch the throttles and ignore the gap. Once you've got them synched and idling properly you'll likely find the gap OK. If it is anywhere close...ride and enjoy the newfound smoothness. If it is grossly out of spec, there will be something wrong somewhere. Bent, worn out or not adjusted properly. Give it a try and see what the gap ends up being when you are synched.
