Carb Removal Video

Would someone please post a video on youtube (or elsewhere) showing how to remove the carbs. That would be a major asset we can point to when we suggest carb cleaning. I haven't done it yet; what we need is carb removal done by someone who has done it several times before (an expert). Cindy?

I second the motion. I have read the manual procedure and looked at all the pics in the book and here, and feel pretty confident I could do a teardown, cleaning and rebuild. That said, I would still like to see a video of the procedure before starting, if one was available.

I'd be delighted to pitch into the effort, but I have absolutely no clue as to how to work a video camera. Never had one in my life - even the film kind! Anyone near Frederick, MD who knows how to run a vid recorder?

Dang it. If I was close, I'd volunteer. And I'm kind of shocked.

Well, I guess I shouldn't be shocked. If you've never used one, you might think that you wouldn't know how. It's not much different from a camera - charge the battery, pull the lens cap off, put a tape in (or whatever they use now), and push record.

Pulling and cleaning carbs is as easy as working a video camera. Unless you've never done it, which doesn't make it hard, just unknown.

The step by step in the Clymers is ok, and worked for me my first time. The one thing not in the Clymers, that would surely be captured on video would be all the cuss words. Other than that, it's about the same.

True, true! Maybe we should all pitch to write that 'addendum' to the Clymer's and have DMAG put it in a "restricted" section of the Verses!

I guess that's the reason the neighbors keep their kids inside when they see me getting ready to work on, well anything.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

I'm not from Missouri, but like others, I learn best by "show me." I think the child development people call it "modeling."

If I use the service manual, I have to pull the tank and everything associated with the airbox. I don't think that's the best way. I want to see it done.

PS - I got off my meds so that I'll get angry enough to just do it. Can't afford to take it in to the shop. So I'm apologizing in advance if I "go off" on anybody.

I pulled my tank, but I left that rectangular air box that runs just above the engine....

But whatever works best for you is what you go with. I'd video it if I had to do it, (knock wood), but I'm not generous enough to go out and do it just for filming. Sorry. And I don't have a second bike, Vulcan or otherwise.

It's kind of surprising nobody has done it yet, or at least a step-by-step photo instruction. There are two kinds of Vulcan riders; those who have pulled the carbs, and those who will.

Good luck.
