I'm trying to pull the carbs out of my bike. I have been following the clymer manual. I'm to the point were I have to loosen all the intake/manifold rubber hoses(the 4 big ones). I can't get those suckers off the carbs. It says gentley pull the carbs off the left side of the bike. There is no way you can be gentle. I have been pulling till I think my right nut has dropped! Please if somebody has pulled their carbs off an 86 or 87 VT700c could you give me your advice on what to do. I don't want to break anything. As parts for this bike are nearly impossible to get.
