Put the boots on first on the carbs. The top of the boots is flange 
that fits inside the airbox and that is all that holds the airbox to 
boots. don't fuck with the clamps, just clamp the boots to the carbs 
and then PUSH the airbox down on top of the flanges.  The flange will 
slip partway into the airbox on both carbs, and then use a finger or 
short screwdriver to slip the flange the rest of the way on from inside 
the airbox, just stick your hand in and flop the flanges on.

Take ten minutes the first time and three then next. i just pulled an 
airbox that way five times this weekend.
