    Putting carbs back on 96 wave venture triple, what's the trick?

    Got the carbs off and kits should be here soon. I got the 3 carbs off all 3 of which are bolted to an intake flange and sync'ed together with screws.

    On both sides of each carbs had a nut holding the flange to the intake studs and it all lifts off as one unit. The nuts on each side of the center carb were a bitch since the sync linkage and fuel lines are right over top of them.

    Not sure how I am going to get them started back on the studs. Any tricks to make the installation easier?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a pair of needle nose pliers with a curved tip that I use to set the nut back on the stud. After that I can turn them down with one finger till they're snug enough to finish with the wrench.

    A few times lol. Once you've done it a few times you learn the tricks, especially to put those 2 on first. Nothing worse than getting em all started then having to take them back off cuz you dropped one.
