Once you've released the clamps, the throttle cables, the vent hoses, the coolant tubes and, of course, the air box then the carbs should pop out. You might have to pry up or wiggle and pull up to get them out. Now would be the time to double check the vacuum hoses located below the carbs and the rubber mat. The one that connects the 2 manifolds and has a 90 degree bend is especially prone to cracking and should be replaced if it's the original hose…. regardless if it's leaking or not. If it's not leaking now it will eventually.

I'd like to see a picture of that hose and where it goes as I have a couple of hoses hanging down under my '86 1200. I don't know where they go or what they do. One of them could be this hose. Maybe??

the 1200's aren't the same as the 1500's. Much easier to work on the carbs in comparison to the 1500's. The 1200's don't have the same hose I was talking about on the 1500.

It maybe a good idea to mark the vaccum hose so putting it back together goes easier.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

If you have the carbs still out, there is a rubber mat under the carbs. Check the hoses underneath this mat while you have the carbs off. There have been a few cases of a bad vacuum hose found under this mat. I just had mine out checking all these hoses.
