Can anybody help me out. I am going to rejet my 05 f7 carb... I was wondering if it is easier to pull the carbs out or pull the access panel from underneath it?
Also, any suggestions on what size to use. Only other engine mod is that I'm going with an advanced keyway when I rejet it.

i put my 05 f7 carb on a snowmobile stand and take off the hood, air box and took the carbs out then changed them. im in wi and do alot of trail riding and i think i got 450 mains too, ill have to check this weekend. taking it out of storage and washing it, polishing tunnel and greasing it. then putting on my new hand guards, windshield and exhaust vaulve spacers from BIKEMAN on the sled. i cant wait for snow!!

Pull the skid plate, its just as easy as pulling the carbs off. Just pull the drain in the middle of the carb and stick a 5.5mm socked up there with a swivel on it. Only takes a few minutes.

Pulling the skidplate and getting at it from bottom (with sled on it's side) is easiest method (try doing between 4-5 a day along with the other "updates" they had) on top of fully prepping and studding :bang:
It helps to lightly pinch off fuel line with a small clamp or hemostats as close to carbs as possible as it can continue to trickle gas and make things messy for you
