Default Can someone list the steps to removing a stock carb please?

I've been hesitant to remove my carb because of the various cables and hoses that are attached to it - didn't want to mess something up or get to a point where I couldn't get it back on.
Any help would be appreciated!

Sounds like you don't have a service manual.
I'd suggest you get one if you are going to
be doing things like removing your carb, the
manual will pay for itself in no time.
Your local dealer should have them in stock.

If you just need a little access room to the carb (e.g. swapping jets) it can be pretty simple. Once the bracket's off (or backplate, depending on what you have), you just loosen the throttle cables to make some slack, unhook the enricher cable from its bracket (once again, for slack), and wiggle the carb out of the intake manifold. It's just held in by pressure & the bracket/backplate. The hoses have enough play that you shouldn't have to disconnect them. Of course, if you want to take the carb right off the bike to work on it on a bench, etc., then obviously the cables/hoses have gotta go.

Regardless of what you're doing, Xena's right; getting the field manual is certainly a good investment!
