Check out the carb re-build videos posted by Roach. They're stickied at the top of the page. I followed these along with the Clymers manual and was able to pull it off with very little trouble. Great videos BTW.

I removed mine last weekend, used no manual or video's.
It is not so difficult, just not easy to work due to the small space they are stuffed in.
Cleaning is for next weekend, i searched and looked @ the video's mentioned above and can highly recommend them.

Hey welcome here.
A stickie is a post that is made to be permanent on top of the list in that section.

You can find this 1 here:
https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19660

There are a number of great video's from Roach, all listed in his signature.

Where would be the best place to find a manual, aside from buying a brand new one from Clymer, which i may do anyway. Thanks ahead of time.

I've pulled my carbs more times than I care to count and I'm only moderately inclined to these matters. I HIGHLY suggest that you ear shave and coaster while the carbs are out so that you can get rid of the big black airbox on top of the carbs. There are tons of threads about this that you can search for. This will make it so much easier to pull them in the future and you will thank yourself for it.

What is "ear Shaving" and "Coastering"? I'm a complete Noob when it comes to most of these terms.
