I had trouble at first but after I removed the 2 rubber boots connected to the airbox I was able to remove the carb. I hope to finish by cleaning up the carb next week. I miss riding my 650.

Cleaning Cb750SC carbs
This is for someone who had asked -- from the video he sent me his carbs
are the same as mine - mine is an 83 CB750SC twin cammer. Carbs are pretty
universal Honda/Kehin fare for the era.. On the nighthawk to pull em -- I
just push the rubber boots into the airbox, then wiggle the carbs out up
and down gently (of course after removing all 8 clamps) -- to get them
back in I rub motor oil on the intake boots (engine side) and rub a little
oil on the snouts of the carbs so it's an easy in. Generally I'll have the
intake boots all the way out before re-mounting the carbs and if they are
too brittle that I am afraid to work them into the airbox and over the
carbs with the carbs already in place ... I'll replace em ... there is a
bolt at the top of the airbox that lets you slide it back a little- that
makes life a lot easier ... Hope it helps the dude out
How to sync carbs on a motorcycle
This video demonstrates the procedure to synchronize a carburetor on a 1977
Honda CB550. It is really important, especially for bikes of this vintage,
to synchronize your carbs at the beginning of every riding season or after
any repair or adjustment to the carbs. This bike still needs some work to
be road ready, but it has a lot of potential and is super cafe racer cool.
If you are attempting to do this procedure yourself and have any questions
before you start, feel free to let me know. That's the good thing about
Youtube, FREE INFORMATION FOR ALL!!!!!
EDIT: Here are a few edits I would like to make to this video after
watching it a couple of times.
1. Make sure your carb synch comes after everything else in a normal tune
up. This includes Valve clearances, cam chain tension, spark plug
gap/cleaning, point gap, ignition timing, air filter cleaning/replacement,
and all the air bleed screw settings should be checked.
2. Engine speed for a carb synch should be around 1500rpms if possible.
3. The adjuster screw lockdown nuts should always be re-tightened after
adjustment (I forgot to show it)
