Getting ready to synch the carbs. However, I dread the thought of having to unbolt the engine guards on both sides just to thread in the small screw for the vacuum hose.

Has anyone gotten creative and fabbed some sort of 90`elbow or something else to attach hose for the front 2 elbows?

Thanks!

Go to parts store and get an assortment of vacuum hose fittings. Trim off the flared out plastic barb, and screw it into the intake. I did that the other day and it did the job.
