You need to remove the seat and fuel tank first. Loosen the clamps on the back of all 4 carbs that the air box boots are connected to. Then do the same on the front of all 4 carbs that connect the carbs to the intake boots. Pull the carbs out of the boots and disconnect the choke and throttle cables. Now you got to take the carbs completly apart for a good cleaning and adjustment. If you feel this is to much for you to handle then take it to a good bike repair shop.
