    if this a 951 you have to do it with your eyes closed...literally. leave the exhaust alone. you have to take the carbs off anyway to get the exhaust out. now, you have to drop the airbox then you have to reach over from the throttle side and feel your way around for the 4 allen head bolts and they drop right off. once you have done it a couple times it gets easier.

    You can't get the the last nut on the exhaust off with the carbs in unless you have the special wrench for it. Leave the exhaust alone. It's a PIA to reseal anyway

    Here are some key points:

    1. Don't take off the exhaust pipe! It is a pain to seal properly unless you know the tricks, so don't take it off!
    2. The first time you do it, use a mirror to see where the allen bolts are located, so you can find them by feel.
    3. Do yourself a favor and buy a set of long allen ball-end sockets. This makes the job a lot easier.
    4. Don't remove the throttle cable by loosening the nuts that secure the cable to the bracket! Take the carbs off as a set with the throttle cable still attached, and unscrew the bracket that holds the trottle cable from the end of the carb, then unhook the throttle cable end-ball from the throttle shaft. When you put it back on, just reverse the sequence. This way, you don't need to adjust the throttle cable, which most newbies fuck up.
