I'd rather be riding

Last time I took mine off, I fought with the reassembly too, until I heard
about a neato trick...

Before reassembly,set the bike (and specifically the carb boots) out in the
sun for a while. If they're still complient enough, before reinstall, roll
them back on themselves (like a clean sock). left a good half an inch to set
them, then unrolled (inner first then outer) over the carb throats. they
took a few minutes to shrink back up, but the lack of cussing was really
worth it.
