What is the procedure to remove the carburator from a WR 400? I had a go this evening but could not seem to get an allen key into the black plastic housing cover on the right side. I did not think it necessary to remve the coil to do so?I must be overlooking something? Can't seem to find my manual at the moment either argh! one of those frustrating nights.I would like to clean the accelerator pump,do an inspection and change the main jet.
If someone could post an order of disassembly I sure would be appreciative.

You can pull the coil and flop it back behind the frame. To access the cable housing.

Pull the seat and tank.
Remove the cable housing cover.
Remove the cables.
Or take the cables off at the throttle.
Loosen the air box boot, pull it back and tuck it behind the frame.
Loosen the front boot.
Disconnect the TPS lead.
Disconnect the hot start hoses.
Pull the vent hoses out from the suspension linkage area.
And pull the carb.

Did I miss anything guys?

You don't need to take the seat & tank off (or coil) if you take the cables off at the throttle. Only slide the cables under the tank far enough to access the carb and stop at about 8 inches.

There are no hot start hoses on the '00 & '01WR's.

I'm very well practiced at this. The quickest stopwatch time so far is about 5 minutes to have the carb on the bench.

Your plan sounds better, maybe next time a riding buddy asks, 2 hours+draft. :)
