The reverse of how they came out!

I am about to do the same so we will see. From what I gather, it is easiest through the right side (brake side) - remove all the boots and manifolds, manoeuvre it through on an angle, then fix all the bits to it. I know that if you have the slotted inlet boot where the inner bolt only needs to be loosened it is a lot easier, without the slot, it can be a right pain in the arse.

Hello there, I have just cleaned my carbs, some crazy person said to leave the carbs on and clean them, I did not. it took me ages to wiggle them out but it was fine, I only took out the carbs, not the rubbers and they come out from the left side not the right, also putting them back in was really easy, all I did was spray some lube on a cloth and rub it on the air intake rubbers and engine rubbers and they just popped in, the next time i take them off i will lube the rubbers first, should just slip out, the left side.
I sat on the bike and lifted them up and wiggled, hope this helps,
