What is the easiest way to remove the carb from a MT250? Silly question I know, but there's got to be a way that's better than yanking it out forcibly. Thanks :D

You can try heating the manifold and air boot with a heat gun on low, then pushing the carb back against the boot while rotating it out of the manifold, I usually just unbolt the manifold on my MR, but that's kind of a pain with the MT oil injection.

Thanks, I usually can loosen the rear air cleaner box and wiggle it out but I got one now that just sits there solid and I'm afraid to rip the boots. :shock:
