6.
Disconnect the overflow/drain tubes from
the carburetors (A. Figure 7).
7. On U S . models, slide the vacuum hose
clamps up (B, Figure 7) and disconnect the
hoses from the carburetors.

Loosen the clamp at the front of each
carburetor (C, Figure 7). then roll back the
spring (D) at the rear of each carburetor.
9.
Pull the carburetor assembly back to the
rear and remove it from the motorcycle (Figure
8).
10. To install, reverse the removal steps. Note
the following:
Ifthe throttle linkage was disturbed or if a
carburetor throttle slide was removed,
synchronize the throttle slides visually so
that they each have an equal gap at the
throttle bore when closed (Figure
9).
To
do this loosen the adjuster locknuts
(A,
Figure lo), turn the adjusters as required
and tighten the locknuts. Open the
throttle fully and check that the bottom of
the lowest throttle slide clears the top of
the throttle bore; if it does not, loosen the
open limit locknut and turn the open
limit adjuster as required (B, Figure 10).
Tighten the locknut.
On U S . models,
check that the vacuum
lines are attached at the rubber carburetor
holders (Figure 11).
Make sure the carburetors are fully seated
forward in the rubber carburetor holders.
You should feel a solid bottomi in^ out"
when they're correctly installed. Tighten
the mounting clamps securely.
CA UTION
.I.Iakesure the carburetor mounts areair
tight. Air
leaks can cause severe englne
damage because o f a lean mxture or the
intake ofdirt.
d. Tighten the air cleaner housing mounting
bolts
after
the carburetors have been
installed.
e. Route the closing (rear) throttle cable
along the left-hand side of the frame
backbone and the opening cable (front)
along the right-hand side. Hook up the
opening cable first, then the closing (rear).
The cables must not be twisted, kinked or
pinched.
f. Route the 4 overflow/drain tubes through
the rubber strap at the rear of the engine
(Figure 12).
f. Route the 2 vent tubes up to the top ofthe
airbox (Figure 13).
g. Adjust the throttle cables and carburetors
as described in Chapter Three.
Refer to Figure 14 and Figure 15. Most
carburetor disassembly can be done without
separating an individual carburetor from the
assembly.
We recommend disassembling only one
carburetor at a time to prevent accidental
u
interchange of parts.
