I have the intake manifolds off. The carburator moves, but there is like packing on top. It looks as if it has to be removed before it will slide out. Does the gas tank have to be removed ?

Hi JHood and welcome to the forum. Gas tank does not have to come out. Remove air filter housing and associated hoses, disconnect throttle cables from the bell crank. Remove the intake elbows. Remove the vacuum towers from the right side, then the whole array will come out the left side. (With some work)

as jackjohn said, the air filter housing has to be removed, then the right side carb caps have to be removed too, then you pull the carbs to the left and disconnect throttle cables and continue to remove them to the left side.

i almost forgot, in some cases (most) there is a coolant pipe that bolts on top of the head between the intakes on the left side, it has to be removed aswell.

Welcome to the forum jhood41591
Do you have the repair manual for your bike? That is your #1 tool to have and use.

Where do you get this from William? I never had to remove that tube.

when I had my 1100's I never removed the coolant tubes for removing the carbs.

Tell me it can't be done and I will make it happen if I can make or get the parts made

You just didn't hold your mouth right, never heard of anyone removing that tube to do it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Thanks for all the quick replies. Yes I have a repair manual, it says the same things you have replied, except it says open the glove box and remove the tool kit.where is the glove box? The box directly in front of me when sitting on the seat contains the fueling cap and the compressor for air shocks. I didnt mention it has air shocks.

Thanks again to all who responded.
