So im not sure if I got really lucky last night or not but I cleaned the carbs and installed a new pilot jet, mine was clogged full. Anyways, i reinstalled the carbs last night. I tried once or twice with the the boots set up like the manual says, to put the reat boot on the head and the front boot on the carb, but i couldnt get them to line up. So i but put both boots on the heads, and they slipped right into place. Did i just get lucky or did i find the magic angle and boot placement?

Thanks Gordon, im pretty sure it was all luck lol. The next time the carbs come off they are getting rejetted and that damn airbox is coming out in as many pieces as i can cut it into lol. I bet the carbs come right out and go right back in without that damn box. Its also going to get coastered when i do the partial ear shave. I say partial because im going to keep the ears there and use them as storage for all my road gear and crap. I just want the performance and ease of carb work without the airbox, but i like the look of the ears.

I attached both boots, but kept the clamps for the carb side off, then i pushed the carbs into there spots so i didnt bend the clamps, then just slid the clamps between the carbs and the boots, seemed to work out pretty well for me. i did spray some pb blaster on the boots to lube them up, made installation a thousand times easier, everything just kinda slid together.

Air box removal

I removed my plastic air box using a red hot hacksaw blade. Used some tape to make a handle and using a propane torch heated the end of the blade red hot. then melting and cutting the box into removable sized pieces. total time 1 1/2 hrs. be careful of the hoses and wires.

There are supposed to be alignment marks on the boots and carbs.

how do the boots go back on? like what angle?
If you look on the boots you will see where there is like a little half circle bump on them. That half circle bump is suppose to line up with the head on the same style pattern on the very top middle of the head.

What does it mean by head projection? the angle the head is facing?
What are you referencing in the highlighted sentence?
I do not see anything in this thread with the phrase *head projection*.
I need some context to understand the question.:confused:
