This depends on which carb (s) you want to disasemble as they are all diffrent.
I suggest you goto autozones web site at autozone.com and start there as they have most automotive manuals and step by step instructions on almost all parts and disasembly.

Bike sat for 3 years. Is very very underpowered. Feels like a 50cc. Misses at high rpms. Carbs were not cleaned or rebuilt. What should I do?


Remove and disassemble the carburetors, clean the carburetor body, replace the main jets and the pilot jets with new parts, being careful not to damage the brass when reinstalling the new parts. Reassemble the carburetors and reinstall on the bike. Drain the fuel tank, inspect the fuel tank for rust or sediment, seal with Red-Kote or Caswell Epoxy if necessary. Remove the petcock, disassemble and clean all parts of the petcock, buy a rebuild kit if the vacuum diaphragm is dried or damaged. reinstall the petcock and fill the fuel tank with premium fuel. Clean or replace the spark plugs, and check that compression is within specifications on each cylinder. Synchronize the carburetors. Change the oil, drain and refill the cooling system, flush the brake system with fresh Dot4 fluid. Check the exhaust system for possible obstructions (rodent nests). Check the air in the tires. Each of these steps is essential for safe and proper performance of your motorcycle, especially after sitting for as long as 3 years.

Leaking oil around drive sprocket


This is caused by the float in the carburetor becoming stuck in the down potion. This happens due to dirt build up or, a bad seat on the plunger that controls fuel into the carb or a leaky float. The float may have a leak that causes it to take on a amount of fuel. The carburetor needs to be cleaned and rebuilt. If you've never done this I suggest you take it to a shop and ask them to do it.

If you want to try and to it yourself buy a repair manual, carb rebuild kit and a can of carb cleaner. Use the manual to find out how to remove the carburetor and disassemble it. Take your time disassembling the carb. Find a clean place to work. Lay out each part as your remove it in order. Pay special attention to the small plunger that is attached to the float. Make sure you replace the float and plunger both. You'll get a new ones in the kit. Make sure the tube it fits in to is clean. Spaying cleaner directly into this is normally good enough to get it clean. Use a small brush or a q-tip wrapped tightly by twisting it in your fingers if you need to. DO NOT use anything that can scratch. This will ruin the carburetor. Clean carb body and all parts thoroughly with carb cleaner. Carefully reassemble, do not over tighten any screws.

The bike was very hard to start and the petrol is pouring through the overflows


Float inside the bottom of carb is attached to a needle that shuts off fuel when the proper fuel height is reached inside the bowl. This tiny needle usually has a rubber tip that is pushed upwards by the pressure of the float. Trash on the seat of the valve, or improper float height are common culprits with fuel pouring out of overflows. you can clear trash of the valve seat by blowing into the fuel port on the side of the carb. You can adjust float height by bending the metal tab that pushes on the needle valve.

My 1983 yamaha virago 500 is having trouble around 3 to 4 thousand rpm and now is having trouble starting and staying started


Sounds like your carb is dirty in all areas. Remove the carb and completely disassemble it. Blow carb cleaner and compressed air through every opening and make sure each opening comes out somewhere when you spray through. Clean the float needle seat with a q-tip and carb cleaner. Spray through each of the jets and be sure they are absolutley clear. Make sure you get the emulsion tube out and clean. it is what the main jet screws into and will have holes down the sides.Screw the mixture screw in and count the turns. remove it and any spring or o-ring and spray through it also and make sure the spray goes all the way through. Replace the mixture screw and set it in the same adjustment as you started. Reassemble and install the carb. If the carb was adjusted properly in the beginning, you should put it back on and your bike run much better.
