Is there an easy way to reinstall those dual carbs on early model XL/XR600R other than heating up the boots with a blow dryer to soften them up in a cold garage???? My knuckles are so sore and I am so tired from wrestling these things! I have done 4 cylinder carbs with ease and have less problems than with these dual odd angled carbs!

I spray wd40 on those rubber boots to make things slip
together better.....
Warming them like your doing will help too...
