Hi, Beth if you ever see gas weepage from your air cleaner after a putt you may be suffering from fuel reversion or standoff. This is a common end result when changing air cleaners, camshafts, and or exhaust systems or mufflers and not using the proper combination of parts that will not give you maximum performance. Basically, what happens is, you have upset the delicate balance of the speed in which the air/fuel mixture enters the combustion chamber. If you change your mufflers the exhaust pulse/charge leaving the exhaust valve hits the baffle and bounces back to the exhaust port putting up a different amount of resistance to the next outgoing pulse/charge depending upon the baffle design. This negative situation can sometimes be remedied by installing reversion/torque cones. If you change your carburetor it may create a virtual wall of fuel, that can be viewed by removing the air cleaner, too be spitting back towards the air cleaner. This negative situation can sometimes be remedied by installing a longer intake manifold. Camshaft induced reversion can only be fixed by using a different cam with the proper amount of duration and or overlap. This phenomenon is more noticeable at higher RPM's and can really rob power and performance from a really great ride.

Hi Anonymous, it's pretty straight forward, you might have raise or remove fuel tank to gain access. Start by turning off fuel valve, remove fuel line, air cleaner and backing plate, throttle cables, and choke cable, then just wiggle it out of the intake manifold. Good luck
Remove air cleaner Remove torx screws in carburetor throat. Remove air cleaner backing plate. Turn off gas valve. Remove fuel line from carb. Pull carb from manifold. Release throttle cables. When re installing carb backing plate, put Loctite Blue on torx screw threads.
Hi Rocky, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator or induction module can be caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck
I have never seen a rear brake pedal extender and have no idea of where to get anything like that. You say your air cleaner sticks out so far that it's uncomfortable to apply the rear brake? Has the air cleaner been changed? The original air cleaner is about as close fitting as one can get.
If the carb and air cleaner are the stock units, you must take the large hollow bolt that goes into each head out. They may be hidden behind some round rubber plugs in the backing plate. You use a large hex key to remove the bolts. With these removed, take the backing plate off by loosening each of the three bolts near the opening of the carburetor a little at a time until the backing plate comes off. The bolts are "undercut" so that they don't fall out of the backing plate and go into the carb in the event they come loose while the engine is operating.
