    Re: carb removal

    Well first off,if the bike is running fine I'd leave 'em on.
    However,they do get stuck to the intakes like someone used crazy glue,I had similar fun with the 97 I parted out.In an attempt to free them up I first wiggled them up and down as much as possible and eventually resorted to carefully placed hits with a rubber mallet,then more wiggling and a few bloodied knuckles later they were off.
    Check them over,consider replacing the float needles since you won't want to go through this again for awhile,if ever.Don't buy the oem Honda ones,Keihin float needles are available through aftermarket suppliers,even through your dealer.
    Take a good look at the intake boots too,probably aged cracked by now.
    Actually,if you can,remove the bolts holding in the boots and see if you can pull the whole set off together,usually much much easier than trying to pull 15 yr old boots off carbs.
    Good luck.

    I had my carbs off my 97, replaced a throttle line amongst other work i was doing, it was a bit of a pain but is not too much of a hassle. Check the boots as mentioned.

    It would be better if you have it done by a certified mechanic. But if your are really adventurous get a haynes manual to guide you the step by step procedure.

    Re: carb removal

    I found that if you warm up the engine to operating temp that the carbs come off a lot easier. Be careful with the nuts that hold the coils to the airbox along with the spacer/washers as they like to pop out at the worst times and disapear forever. I've streamlined the process by pluging off the smog crap and moving the right coil to the frame. Make sure you have a very good japanese philips screw driver for removing the air cleaner clamps.
