alignment of rubber carb mounts....

Hi all...need some advice.....The manual said position the marks to mount the carbs, what are the position marks, are they on the carbs or on the engine.....and what do they look like...All I saw on the mounts was the notation "front" and "rear" are those considered the positional points they mean....Should have paid more attention when I pulled them out......hindsight great teacher uggggg.....

There are molded dots on the ends of the cylinder side. The dots go outboard (3 O'clock and 9 O'clock.)

Glad to help. It took me a while to figure that one out. I don't know if is described very well in any manuals. So you got your carb seated in under two hours? Some of us have spent days! As usual with this bike (and most any wrenching,) the next time you do it, it will only take you 1/4 of the time as the first.

It was very frustrating process, as I had the carbs out a total of three times...had them in, but when installing air duct pieces, they were at the wrong angle and clamping was impossible....carbs have to line up right, so other componants also fall into place......you are so right about time factor....next time it won't be a day or two long event....thanks so much again.....
