    You need to open the screws that holds the carburettors to the intake rubbers, loosen the throttle lids, lift out the throttles. Losen up the gas lines and the hoses that goes to your cooler system.(plug them with a bolt or something). Now u pull the carbs away from the airbox and the only thing that holds it is the choke wires. Loosen them up and then u can begin your cleaning. It usually is alot of crap in the bottom of the carbs....Use compressed air when u clean it

    Also, only take 1 apart at a time, take notes of the jets installed, as well as the needle used. These things will come in handy later if ever you have problems...
