Carb R&R Videos
A quick (5 minute) video showing an easy way to install the carbs back on the bike. The airbox should unbolted from the frame so you can move it around, then bolt it back down once the carbs are in place.

Flickr didn't convert it properly for online viewing so I also uploaded it to YouTube:
To remove the carbs, it's basically the reverse; pull the airbox back and tilt up the backs of the carbs up to remove them from the manifolds. I will admit that this was all learned while learning to tune the carbs and you can see it took me a long time and probably at least 50 times on and off. So people shouldn't get discouraged the first few times.
You can't stay young forever, but you can be immature for the rest of your life...
