    I'm about to kill my 95 slx 780

    Ok, so how in the F do you get the top bolts for the manifolds off so I can pull the carbs? I need to check them, the ski runs, but won't wrap....


    Am I missing something completley obvious?

    Leave the manifold on and remove the 6 nuts holding the carbs down to it. Use a 12mm stubby wrench, reach under the carbs and remove them. Hopefully you can spin them off with your fingers once you release the tension.

    NOTE: place a towel under the carbs in case you drop a nut. That way it doesn't roll under the engine. Also make sure to release the oil pump linkage rod before lifting the carbs off.

    If those carbs turn out to have issues, I just found another set of 780 carbs that were with the trashed machine I had picked up at the same time as that one. Don't know what shape they're in, but they're yours if you want them.

    Cool man, I appreciate it. I think they are fine, just need a cleaning.

    John Zigler sells a nice rebuild kit for the Mikuni SBN 38's that you have.

    Yeah, I was going to hit Zig up on Monday and get a few things.

    To anyone that doesn't know, John Zigler is the man!

    Zig is a great asset for parts for sure.

    The rebuild kit he sells for the 38's includes everything you'll need for all 3 carbs including the needles and seats.

    For what he charges, is it cheap insurance? The ski was stored from 98 till last year...

    If the carbs were never rebuilt, I'd do it. As well as new fuel lines and filters.

    Since you know the seller, ask and see if he's done any of the updating/upgrading recently?
