Can't get carb out?
I bought a '92 750 a few months ago, in the dead of winter. I knew she needed some work and it's finally warm enough to start...well mostly. In any case, I've got some mechanical experience working on cars through the years (engine swap, trans replacement, misc parts all over the place), but motorcycles and carburetor engines are new territory. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the most basic of things..I can't get the damn thing out!
I've disconnected the air intake hoses, the throttle cables, fuel lines, removed the fuel tank, etc.. The problem is the carb seems to be pretty stuck in there. The carb itself is disconnected from the cylinder on each side, with the hoses still attached to the cylinders. The air intake hosts are also disconnected from the carb, but still attached to the plastic air intake manifold. I tried pulling those out, but I'm afraid of tearing the hoses at this point.
I also can't get the choke cable disconnected - but I've got enough slack that I can probably take care of that once it's out - definitely a tight fit in there.
Any advice on getting the carb out? I can't find any decent videos on youtube - just before and after which doesn't do much good.
