carb holder

I got new Carb holder and it keeps popping the Carb out when the bike is running. I set it by the book and it keeps doing it. Does anyone know what may be causing this.

It's the rubber mount that holds the Carb to the head. And yes that is what the book calls it

I second this. Gotta have those suckers tight, and make sure the clamp doesn't weasel its way up.

I thought the manual called it a carb boot, or a carb manifold boot? I guess not.

Could you possibly have the wrong angle with the boot to the head & carb, it definately should not pop out!

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

^ x2 ^

There is a (F)ront, and a (R)ear holder. Each of them have alignment tabs for proper installation angle.

Ratt is correct, there is a letter and tab for each one. Supprised you even got them on with angles being off! ( I learned the hard way on that myself!! )
