Pull the two nuts off the carb and the intake and remove the carb. Now you have access to the intake gasket. Replace it and put the carb back on. Don't have to disconnect the carb usually. Just have to pull it off.

First try to sync the carbs (link 1), if you can not balance them, then you have to rejet the slow and main jet. Do not drive the bike without sync the carbs, overheating can destroy cylinder, rings, cam chain etc.

Just bought a 2004 honda spirit 1100,has 65 roedhouse exhaust,dont like the way it backfires when you let off the throttle,whats the fix?

The carburetors have air cut valves that should minimize popping. A lot of backfiring is caused by air leaking past bad gaskets. Try replacing the copper o-ring style crush gaskets where the pipe goes into the head. If the pipes are two piece replace the gaskets where the head pipe meets the muffler ( or make some using fiberglass cloth).
