removing carb return spring questions
I remember reading somewhere how you can remove a spring on a carb to make the effort required to pull the throttle less. all I can see is the 3 main springs on each carb that shuts each butterfly. Can one of those be removed? Im looking for less fatigue on long rides where im riding half throttle or so. can I just pull the spring out of the middle carb so the outside two do the work? Any advice (other than get a stronger index finger)? Im not too worried about it but I have the carbs off, so I figured I might as well

sure can, just make sure there is enough force from the other two to easily close the butterflies.
This is not as bad an issue on the GPR I-body style as it was on the old school SBN style. those puppies were wound literally.

So just pull the middle one out? Unbolt the linkage from the bottom? No tricks involved

pretty straight forward yo udo have to pop the linkage and then ther is the one nut t oremove thats it. I always use a small crescent wrench and hold the throttle stop part of the linkage, when I tighten or loosen the nut. This way I am not applying any pressure on the shaft or butterflies, they are made of brass and can be bent.

That wasn't hard at all, put all the washers back and stuff seems to be better
