What’s the easiest and best way to remove intake from 96 gl1500. Or a free manual.

On the header of where you found this forum, there is also a space called "manuals". Check that out first before you do anything, I don't always have a computer handy when working on my bikes/cars and such, so I buy manuals, plus I am "old school" and like paper magazines or books. You do have to remove all the plastic on the front except for the fairing. Take pictures as you go so you can put everything back to where it was.

limpy,

thanks for the response. I ended up tearing into it without the book. once you remove the fans from each side the motor practically opens up. funny thing is, when you watch these videos on the carb removal and replacement. they do not talk about removing these certain items that would greatly increase the R/R of them. Key thing to note would be the fan on the right side of the bike as your sitting on it. you remove that bad boy and you have plenty of room to install the carbs, adjust them and even deal with that hose that goes into the right upper corner of the breather box.

Why they dont say this and spend countless minutes trying to fight with that hose is beyond me. But who knows. These bike are intimidating to look at but a few things remove and they become easy to understand.
