Okay---I need some advise before starting my carb removal process. Do I need to remove the complete fairing? It seems like I read somewhere you can do it removing the lower sections only. Someone with experiance want to guide a "Wing Rookie"?

Thanks!!!

Fairing lowers off is enough. The carbs pull out to the left. You will find plenty of existing threads with more information if you use the forum search.

you dont have to pull any of it off. remove all 4 intake tubes. remove the choke cable and the cable mount bracket. remove both right hand air caps. remove the air box from inside the surround, tip it up in front, pinch the sides together and pull it out. remove the fuel and vacuum lines. cover the tank surround with a blanket. remove the handlebar clamps, and orient your throttle close to the tach so you have lots of throtle cable slack. slide the carbs to the left, and twist up slightly, and they will come out far enough to get the cables off. some bikes you have to push the left inner fairing plastic out a bit, but not usually. the carbs will come right out. Without a single fastener not hooked to the carbs removed, except the handle bar clamp.

Now be careful when removing the intake tubes not to pinch the o'rings, they can be damaged and also I use a small amount of grease to hold them in place while installing them back, these instruction above are outstanding..Also when you remove the air caps off the right sides like he says don't lose the springs or damage them getting them out or mix them up, I pull the slides out too and please don't drop them, and one really important thing you must do right away as soon as you remove the intake pipes, put something in the holes right away [rags], it would suck big time if something fell into the hole and you didn't know it..Take your time..But if you do it as Cyclebuster said to, it's gold man..Oh and pay close attention to the routing of the cables..Same with the air tubes from the air box andchoke cable...

sorry i forgot the duct tape portion of the removal. It was late. I have seen instructions for removing these things leaving the bike stripped naked almost. Every time a part is removed, its subject to damage. Best to leave it on the bike. I remove my intake orings, and spread a thin film of permatex under them, and this not only holds them in place, it spaces them up slighty, so they seal better.
And by the time you have the covers, seat, fairing lowers, and everything else people say to remove, I have the carbs on the bench working on them.

Re-routing the cables "outside" the frame on the left side makes it a lot easier to remove the carbs going forward..
This way you can slide them much farther left to remove throttle cables from carbs.
