    Real dumb... How many bolts hold on the carbs on the gp1200r?

    When I bought my ski it was all apart. I have it almost back together and went to instal the carbs last night after rebuilding them. I got 6 long m8 bolts in, two per carb. There also appears to be 4 bolt holes on the plate the carbs sit on but I was only able to get the top two in. The bottom two bolt holes seem to have no threads in the block to grab. The factory service manual doesn't have a good picture of how the carbs bolt to the reed block.

    So 10 bolts total? I have to pull the carbs off again and see whats going on. Doesn't feel stripped. Bolt just wont grab anything like its a blind hole.

    The gasket is probably just on wrong it will block the hole

    I got it. Feel real dumb. I was trying to do this late the other night and had the wrong bolts. They were too short. I didn't take the ski apart so trying to figure out what is what.
