first time cleaning the carbs on my 96 indy 600 triple. i have taken out the air box how do i remove the throttle cable and chock cable or do you leave them in during cleaning...the only reason i wanted to clean them was because it was bogging down when giving it gas

To remove the throttle cable, unscrew the top of the carb. The throttle cable is attached to the top of the carb and attached to the slide. There will be a large spring inside the carb between the top and the slide. Pull up gently to remove the spring, slide, and jet needle. You can then set the assembly aside to pull the carbs. You will also have to remove the fuel line from the carbs, and be aware that the float chambers will be full of gas; if you tip the carb upside down, the gas will come out and make a mess. Have a pan ready.

To remove the choke plunger, unscrew the plunger mechanism at the carb body. There is a small spring holding tension on the plunger. There is a chance that the cable end can come out of the plunger, which will allow the plunger and spring to fall off, therefore falling directly under the engine, never to be seen again by mortal man. Forewarned is forearmed!

good explanation BC Dan. I thought I was the only one to lose parts in the bottomless abyss otherwise known as the belly pan

I bought a ZR from a guy one time with a blown piston. When I removed the engine, there were various small screws, 3 spark plugs, a screwdriver (phillips), a spark plug socket, and a magnetic pickup tool. It pays to buy sleds from Fumblefingers ;)

If you didn't disturb the settings, the throttle and choke should be able to retain their settings. If not, the throttle should have 0.010-0.030" of slack from the throttle lever to the throttle block. The choke lever should have about 1/8" of freeplay as well. To adjust the throttle, the two cables on the top of the carbs are used. To adjust the choke, the adjustment is on the choke cable near where the plunger screws into the carb.

You counted the number of turns with the pilot air screws right?

What are the screws set to? To richen the idle mix, try going IN on the air screws. I have found 1 turn out from lightly seated works good on the air screws, but don't be afraid to go in even further to eliminate your problem. If you screw the air screws all the way in and there is no change in performance, your pilot jet circuit has a clog in it somewhere.
