Since the oblong hole collapses, it squished around the top of the front cylinder and i was able to pull the whole thing out in one piece without having to move a bunch of wires.
Good plan!


Whatever works!

Probably don't need adjusted, unless they're actually too high and not stuck.

If stuck, usually some sharp whacks with a plastic screwdriver handle on the side of the carb can free it up.

roadpouring Drill a hole large enough for a hacksaw blade.
Wrap end of blade with masking tape and arrange the teeth so that they cut when you pull.
Or use an 'endless hacksaw'.
Or use a Sawzall with a long blade so as not to bang up the motor.

Place some wooden wedges above the airbox to stabilize it and keep it from moving up and down.

Once the box was cut, I wiggled and pulled the long part out toward the rear of the bike and I think I worked the small part out toward the left of the bike.

Cover your carb intakes. You don't want plastic shavings in there.

Spockster Across the middle, but it still gives most everyone fits. Took mine out in one piece, but you have disconnect most of the wiring harness to do that.
