I am getting ready to pull my carburetors off of my 98 Aero 1100 to clean them. The Haynes manual makes it seem much more complicated than it should be. It says to remove the tank and then to remove the crank case breather separator and then the air cleaner housing. (it sends you to a different part of the book for this) To remove the air cleaner housing it says to remove the side covers, battery, fuse box cover, ignition control module. Then remove the starter cable and ground cable from the battery box and then remove the battery box. Then it says remove the swing arm. Detach the crankcase breather hose. Remove the tool kit. Remove the bolts from the housing, remove the air intake duct,and then remove the fuel pump.
Then it says to detach all spark plug, clutch cable and hose clamps from the heads. Disconnect the fuel hoses, detach the the throttle cable from the pulley. Back off the choke cable. Loosen the insulator clamp screws and carefully work the carburetors from the insulators.
That seems like you have to remove a lot of parts to get to the carburetors.
Is it really necessary to remove all those parts just to get to the carburetors?
