    Intake Removal Tools

    Does anyone have any creative tools to easily remove the intake and carb without cutting up another wrench?

    I may have done somethign worng, but the last time i took the carbs off the 780, I had to cut a wrench to fit in the hull to get to the bolts. I am wanting to clean out the carbs at the end of the season and need an easier idea.

    I dont ever remeber it being that hard on the 650's or 750's. An reason why?

    The best I've found for the job, I just started using it last month.
    Randy at Watcon sells them.

    I used a 1/4" socket set. Not creative but I did remove the carbs and intake without a problem.

    The 780's have reed spacers that is why you have less room!

    Short Snap On 12mm wrench works for me real good. My carbs have been off over a dozen times the last 3 weeks. I do have reed spacers installed, but also I have skinny hands and arms that helps ALOT! Best advice is to keep the threads and nuts REAL clean so you only need the wrench to break free or tighten nuts to spec.

    Use this tool just once and you'll throw your Snap-On wrench away. LOL
    I love my Snap-On stuff but have you noticed the torx and allen sockets twist under minimal stress??

    I cut out the safety foam and use a 12mm stubby wrench. Once you do it a million plus times, it becomes second nature

    No, I went cheap on those since they break or strip too often. I never see a Snap On truck anymore to get replacements.
