Default Rewrite carb clean

Ok so i read the review on cleaning the carb's and decided to add a number of pic's while i cleaned mine...It took 3 can's of carb clean 1 hour to remove the carb's. The hardest part was pulling them off the bike. The cleaning its self took 2 hours. And the reinstallation was an all day thing but i was only giving it half my attention. Ok so here we go first things first no pic's but take the lower and tail fairings off along with the seat and gas tank.

I'm tired i hope this works, ill edit it tommorow
Yes i know its not absolutly detailed to the extreme...what can i say, i'm not an eliteist or some kind of obsessive compulsive freakazoid...and i dont have the tool to pull that pilot jet, so i left that bike started and ran fine after i did the work so it cant be half bad

whatever here's the link Enjoy!

Clean your carb's

This is the photoalbum thing so you can look at the pic's individually...cant get them into order [:@]

Good write up, but did you have any problem getting the carb itself off? I took all but 1 band clamp off well loosened them but I cant get the dang thing off the block.

Pulling the carb's off the bike and getting them back on was the hardest part! rock it front to back to help get them off. I oiled the boots when i put it back on.
