Rear Carb Boot Alignment.....

All of the factory manuals I have a scanned copies and the details of how to align the rear carb boot are impossible to see.

I know the protrusion on the boot should be ~ 15mm from something, but what!!!

Anyone have a better picture or description?

Thanks!

Jon

If you are alinging the boot onto the air box. There are line up tabs that aling with a mark on the air box. You may need a mirror to see the line up marks.

No, the rear boot to the rear carb prior to installation.

Notice how the boots are at an angle? This angle makes the boot have a shorter side and a longer side... hope this makes sense.

Anyway, shorter side towards the center of the bike. Hope it helps!

The intake boot? Yea I had a hard time with those. I still don't think I got them on exactly right. But they did seal off after I tightened the clamp.

The mold line on the top of the carb throat; the "choke" plunger housing extension, for lack of a better term, deadends at that line as a small triangle. The protrusion on the boot goes ~15mm towards the outside of the carb.

There is a mark on the head, and the boot. A small triangle piece that lines up with each other. That's the way it is on mine. Kinda hard to see with the tank on.

yep, there's a thing on the head that matches the protrusion. Looks like a mating surface. Sits at about the 12 o clock position.

In the picture it's below the center of the banjo bolt.

Guys, he's asking about boot to carb, not boot to head. The protrusion where the boot mounts to the head is approximately 15mm to the outside of that line on top of the carb intake when the boot is mounted to the carb itself.

So if I line up at 12 o'clock on the carb, measure 15mm towards the outside, that's the spot?
