Hey,

Maybe a picture of your situation is ideal? Moving on, i do have the GV myselfย  and even the efi one does have tall throttle bodies!

It may sound like i’ve said this over before, but that’s how i got it done in a past 125 gv , and also the gv250 efi currently

– The engine is loosened a bit with front mount bolt even taken out, then its moved a little, then lowered down via a jack.

– The manifolds are not made any more, so if they crack you will regret stressing them => I would hold the carb while rocking the airbox forwards to the front tyreย  , until it slips out of the carb mouths.

The frame bar is permanent, yes it is a strange strange strange design but imagine how they tried to fit the engine and airbox in ?ย  They have to drop the motor then lift it up , i can’t see the engineers putting the airbox sideways without cursing or popping manifolds lol.

I did *at one time* forced an airbox out sideways , but this was on efi as throttle bodies are metal, so i didn’t fear manifold cracks but people do do that , i have no comments to force a box out sideways on carb’d bikes , so use caution. that’s me out lol.

Speaking of bolts,ย  oh yes…. unless you have JIS screwdriver those bolts will warp under normal drivers we use and yes..they rust too lol.ย ย ย  I made sure the carbs i have have allย  stronger stainless allen ones.

Investing in those is a good idea long term ๐Ÿ‘
