There are plugs over the screws, but they looked like they have been remove or something, because there are marked and don't sit flush. I'm not very mechanical inclined so pulling the carbs would probably be a big chore for me. Just turning 2 screws, I can handle that hehe, but removing the carbs sound scary to me. Now give me a computer and I can tear it apart and put it back together, but cars, motorcycles scare me. Although, I remember the first computer I worked on, I was scared then. It never worked again, and I don't want to do that to my bike hehe. I'm downloading the manual for the VT1100C Sabre, is that the one I need to download for my spirit?
