removing carbs from 1100ET


Recommended Posts

Trying to remove the carbs without succes so far. Is this the correct methode?

1. Remove the rear section of the air filter box. The bit that holds the filter.

2. Loosen the rings that clamb the carbs to the inlet rubbers.

3. Pull varbs free from inlet rubbers

4. Loosen the air box (front section air filter) from carbs

5. Release throttle and choke cable

6. Pull out carbs

Or, (point 2) do I leave the rubbers tightend on carbs and do I release them from engine so I pull carbs from engine with rubber attached to carbs?

Or, do I first loosen the air box, so carbs can move around a bit easier?

Any tip welcome.

Sorry for high rookie level question.

I vaguely remember pushing the airbox rubbers in to get more wiggle room.

I cannot remember if that was a succes O.o but hey... we still had Guilders back when i owned a ET

two 6mm bolts at the top of the front airbox, once they are removed the airbox will drop out of the way :tu

it might help taking the two chrome end covers off as well.

You forgot "remove fuel tank" at the beginning :D

Carbs are off. What worked for me:

1. Loosen airbox and push back to make room.

2. Spay WD40 on/in carb-rubber joint.

3. Wiggle  carbs up, down. And pull, and wiggle, and pull.

Thanks for the tips.

Thats the easy bit unfortunately, getting them back in once the rubbers have hardened  and trying not to fold them whilst trying to line up 8 x spigots.

All part of the 'fun' tho , lol.

Good luck , puddy  :)
