Which rubber boots to disconnect?

I've heard that removing the carbs is much easier if you keep one boot connected to the carb, and the other connected to the cylinder. Each carb has a smaller boot and a longer boot. Which one do I disconnect from the carb, and which one do I keep connected? The first pic is from the left side of the bike. You can see the longer boot on the right side of the picture, and the smaller boot closer to the middle of the picture. 2nd pic is of the other carb, taken from the right side of the bike, with the 2 boots in the same spots as the other pic. Which 2 stay connected to the carbs, and which 2 stay connected to the cylinders? Thanks.

Pics don't show up for me. This should tell you how to go about it. You are going to remove both rubber elbows that go to the air box first.

Yeah, he referred to them as "front" and "rear" boots. I didn't quite understand which ones he was referring to. So do I disconnect one short one, and one long one? Or both short or both long? I'll link the pictures after work so you get what I'm talkin about.

You take off both of the longer ones that go to the air box. Those are shaped like elbows and aren't attached to the engine. Then you disconnect the shorter boots ( disconnect the front one from the carbs and the rear one from the engine).

Front and rear are in relation to the front and rear of the motorcycle if that's what's tripping you up. You can't say left and right because it depends on what side of the bike you are standing on. HTH

Thanks. This is exactly the answer I was looking for.
