Do I need to remove the intake to remove carbs?
I'm trying to get the four bolts out with the tan color caps and it's a bitch to say the least. Is removing the intake duct the trick to getting these out easier? I'm just using a regular Allen wrench and it pretty much sucks.

You need to take the air duct off, since it is covering the 6 bolts(2 each carb) that go thru the carbs and intake plate into the engine, if you are planning on removing the carbs. The carbs then have 6 bolts (2 each) that come from the back side of the intake into the the carb base that actually mount them to the intake.
With the air duct off, you can then use allen sockets if you want, much easier to remove those bolts, plus easier to torque back when reassembling.

Much easier that way, thanks for the advice. Carbs are off to WFO, now if I can just get it back together I'll be all set.

Easy to get back together compared to putting that stupid huge exhaust back on!!! WFO just did my 01 GP1200R carbs - couldn't be happier the ski runs great. I used his F/A's too - I like them.

In my haste to get everything out I didn't label the hoses...at least I bagged and labeled the bolts. Hopefully it's obvious where they all go. Fuel return is labeled at least. I pulled the U pipe too... Fun fun fun.
