honda shadow carbs

im installing a pair of carbs on a 1986 honda shadow 700, and im having a little difficulty. how do you get them to fit between the airbox and intake with the rubber intake boots . they dont want to seem to fit and the only to things i can think of is force them in there or take the motor out of the bike. input will be appreciated

You should take the motor out!
That or put the carbs on the ground then lay the bike down on top of them with a crane.

Stupid question but you can't bend the boots back far enough just to shove them in there? They should compress a bit

you can get the carbs in with the boots off but you cant get the boots in. if you try to put the carbs in with the boots on then the carbs wont fit.

You have to take the boots off the engine. Then set them at an angle on the head and carbs at the same time, kinda balanced and 1/4 on. Push down and they will slip in all 4 joints at once. Call me if you want me to come over Wed and help. My old intercepters had the same issues, but with 4 carbs in a vee. If you did it right, like butter. Wrong, complete PITA. And never ever take the carbs off the mounting brackets. You'll never get them right again.
