New to vn750 pulling carbs?
Hello. My first post so I hope I don't ask too many stupid questions. I am helping a friend who wants me to help getting his 06 VN750 running. It's been sitting for 3 years at least. I have a new battery charging and want to pull the carbs for a good cleaning. I have a lot of experience with CV carbs so that's not the problem. The question I have is actually pulling the carbs for cleaning. I have the FSM but it leaves some questions. One of the first steps is to remove air filters and ducts to the surge tank. No problem. Second step is to pull the air intake ducts from the carbs and the surge tank. They are in there tight and my fear is that if I pull them I'll never get them back in with the carbs in place.
So my question is do you really have to pull those intake boots (ducts) from the surge tank to pull the carbs? I have the carbs to head boots loose. Front is loose from the carb body rear is loose from the head now. Before I do something stupid is that correct?
I've seen plenty of videos on how to clean them but not a single video on how you actually pull the carbs...
Thanks in advance.
