I will be reinstalling my carburetors soon I need some pointers on the sequence of installing. I know I have to go in from the bikes right side. I know I have to have one of the rubber inlet hoses on the front cylinder. I know I have to line up the nipple with the mark on the cylinder. I know I have to install the inlet on the carburetor for the rear. I know I have to hook up the choke cable I know I have to hook up both throttle push and pull what I’m confused about is the sequence to reinstall the rubber air sleeves that go to the surge tank while the carburetor are out I have tried to see if I can install one on the left side and I don’t want to rip it and I don’t wanna manhandle it. I believe I read you’re supposed to put it in the search tank before you put the carburetor in I’ve watched all the videos, but there’s not much on how to get that elbow back in. I know about squeezing it and about lubricating it. I just want to get some tips on how to accomplish it.
I have been looking through my treasure trove parts, and I’ve come across a Corbin seat genuine to fit a Vulcan 750 it’s got the certification stamp. It has the serial number or the model number engraved in the back plastic all the rivets are intact. There are no rips no tears the material is ostrich pattern, leather sides, the seat portion, and the back are alligator pattern. There’s no provision for a back rest. Other than the stock back portion it’s really a nice seat notorious it has memory foam marked on the back. I’ve never had it on my bike. I bought it when eBay with the intention of using it and then I found a Corbin with backrest and I use that instead, I will be posting some pictures of it. Anyone interested please contact me. I have to look up and see what I paid. Then I’ll figure out what I need to get for it when I got it. I used leathertique to clean it and oil it and then I use the cleaner and I’ve been putting Australian yellow saddle soap on it. It’s really a nice seat. In excellent condition the seats were new sold in the five to $700 range. I will be nowhere near View attachment 55356
If the elbows are good condition and still pliable, you should be able to just smash it together to fit through the hole, then pull it back out slightly so it engages the groove with the lip of the surge tank. These are normally pretty tough and shouldn't tear easily.
I usually push in deeper than it needs to go, then pull it back outward to catch the groove.
There are other ways, but you're limited with the amount of space below the surge tank. A piece of twine in the groove and pull the ends opposite of each other, same as installing a rubber windshield gasket. But there really is no room for that.
If you cave it in with your thumb, push it through the hole, then pull back, it should snap into the groove.
