Thin metal bar connected between the front and rear carb's throttle lever....

I've removed EVERYTHING on my carbs except a bar that links the two carburetors. I assume it's there so that each carb gets an equal amount of throttle - at least, that's what it looks like. But how do I remove the bar? I can't get the carbs out because they are stuck together and it's near impossible to get them both out at the same time.

not imposible.. jsut tricky.. without the air box its much easier.. but you have to tilt and turn the carbs to get them out.. and only out the right side....i belive you are talking about the sync part of the carbs that you are trying to take apart with the carbs on the bike... I am not sure if that is possible.. that is held together with very tiny carter pins.

Thanks clock, just wanted to let you know I did get the carbs out after a few skinned knuckles. I ended up taking out the air hoses completely, along with the air boxes, and it gave me a lot of room. Most importantly I took the boot off of the front cylinder and that was when things started moving. I have the carbs connected together now in one piece, lying on my garage worktable. I'm really not looking forward to tearing them down and rebuilding them....I have no idea where all those hoses are going to go when I reinstall =P

no worries bro... we have had those little turds off so many times the we can do it in our sleep(and have the first two times.. bad dreams)...all you need to do is clean the jets (I had a bowl of Seafoam and let them soak in it while I cleaned everything else in the jet area.. clean the floats and make sure they are in working order.. replace the orings (two big ones.. one of which looks like the drawing of a house... check your 90 degree plastic tubes that connect to the hoses going to the petcock..check the diaframs for tares or holes.. clean the needles and put it all back together.. I would do one at a time If I were you untill your used to doing them...watch those 3 screws that alowes you entery to the float.. they strip easy.. don't ask how I know...keep a pair of needle nose visegrips handy!.. also get yourself 2 small papaerclips...you can clip off a peice of each one to replace the tiny ass carter pins on the sync bars.... the hoses are the easy part!
