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
What a ride it's been!
I miss this bike allot...
I've wanted to make this for a while now. This video begins with some of my
first motovloging moments, and tells the story of my trip to the West this
past April. Most of the footage in this video is new (to you :)
I hope to inspire others to go adventuring by motorcycle. I'm hooked and I
will be doing it again!
If you really wanna see more of any part of the trip, let me know

4 holes drilled in both baffles
Sounds a little more meaner.... cost was free, can't beat that
The video camera ran out of memory and cut it. I will have to make another
one soon, plus it's 40 degrees right now.
83 Suzuki GS1100E carb cleaning
After not running for about 5 years decided to try and clean the varnish
out of the carbs myself. I ended up having to remove the carbs twice to get
them cleaned out right!
(5)- CARB SLOW JET ADJUST= EASY WAY
FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE , THIS IS THE BEST, EASIEST UNDERSTOOD TECHNIQUE.
Slow jets or air jets are very simple and have been around for decades and
