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.

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)
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!
Honda Rebel / Nighthawk CARBURETOR REBUILD 101
BE READY to click PAUSE as we flip through the pictures of my CMZ250's carburetor being rebuilt for the Red Baron. These pictures should aid you in the rebuild of your own IF you have never done it before. Basic tools and simple cleaning solutions used. This is by no means HARD - YouTubes new "annotations" bubbles will be used to describe what's going on so bear with me as I add them ok??.. -Rob
First video with Nighthawk 650sc
Just messing around with a cheap camera. Riding down a curvy little backroad. I was leaning into the curves quite a bit so the bike, with the camera on it, stays relatively upright.
Excuse the poorly done u-turn. I was messing with the camera simultaneously.
