Removing a carburator

Post by cyupta40 » Thu May 07, 2015 1:35 pm

I have a 1995 GL1500-A Goldwing.
I have already removed the air filter and the air filter case.
Now, how do I remove the carburator.
Are there any bolts holding it down?
My manual isn't clear as to how the carburator is attached to the intake manifold and it sits in a very tight spot between the steel framing.

The inner fairings must be removed for access to the carb insulator clamp at base of each carb with a long phillips screwdriver from the outside in. Fuel lines and vacuum line removal, water hose clamp removal which requires extra large long nose pliers, cruise actuator throttle bracket removal, throttle cables, drain and vent hose removal.

Check this post. Virgilmobile has a simple write up on removing carbs.
