The carbs come out the right side (as you're sitting on it) of the bike. Leave the boot for the front carb on the engine block; for the rear carb, take the boot with the carbs. You'll want to lift up HARD on the airbox to clear the way to pull the entire unit (two carbs) out. It's kind of a lift-up-tilt-to-the-left-pull-through-turning-slightly-to-the-rear-of-the-bike motion - and it's not usually very smooth. Seriously, though, if you can get someone to give you a hand, one of you needs to lift up on the airbox and your path will be much, much clearer.

First 2 times I pulled my carbs was out the right. Third time out of frustration I managed to pull them out of the left... I screwed up though and pulled both boots to manage it. Took forever to get them back in the right position. I also found that if you pull a little on the throttle lever on the bottom of the carbs when they start to catch it makes it slide out a lot easier, could just be I had to re pull them so many times to reposition those boots that any extra metal was scrapped out of the way....

Good luck man, like they always say once you have had them out it only gets easier the next time.

Give a holler when you're ready to put it back in. Definitely less of a technique description than encouragement to find your inner zen.
