You all haven't messed with 3rd gen Honda Magna carbs much have ya'? THe amount of swearing and walking off was unreal everytime I had to install them . When I first got my Vmax I was amazed by the ease of removal and installation compared to my Magna, it's just night and day!

When all manner of lubrication or use of force/ leverage/ swearing fail then new boots are called for. It is sooo much easier to reinstall the carbs with new boots.

WD-40 is your friend. Sometimes I use a piece of plywood for leverage, but it shouldn't be that hard to seat them. They must be fully seated or they'll be problems.
