    dumb carb question

    How do I get the throttle and choke linkages off the carbs on my 99 GP1200? I believer they are the Mikuni Super BN44s.

    Sorry for the dumb question.

    loosen the jam nut at the adjuster and the cable assembly will come out of the mounting bracket then align the cable to the slot in the throttle pulley and the cable end should just slide right out. If you need a service manual go to this link and download one for your ski

    Sorry, I meant I already have the carbs out and am trying to separate all three to rebuild them. I have to disconnect the the sync arms that connect all three carbs. Do I just loosen the nut on each?

    I have never lubed any internal carb parts, and I have never heard of anyone doing it.

    Nothing internal, Pack the springs on the adjuster srews with lithium grease to prevent corrosion. Silicone all the throttle shaft bushings and I always put antiseeze on the idle adjustment screw threads.
