'86 VT1100C carb hookup

So I think the Previous Owners removed the EVAP canister and all that crap, and I'm kinda lost on re-installing the carbs now..

anyone have a super easy to understand diagram that I could take a peek at? The only set up I'm familiar with involves one line coming from a tank to a t-junction, then one line going from each side of that directly into a carb on either side of my VW engine.. this shit looks like a mess to me..

Well, My roommate was home when I got home yesterday (normally he doesn't get home til late..) so I had him help with the carbs.. They aren't hooked up exactly like they used to be, but he says they should be good (he used to work on bikes at a dealership, so I'm trusting his knowledge since I have no idea what I'm doing.. Weber IDF's are much easier..).

Now I either have to figure out how the fuck you line up the air filter or just buy some aftermarket shit..

thinking about aftermarket cone filters.. does anyone know off hand the diameter of the top of the carbs? K&N makes one with a flange ID of 68mm, is that the right size? I keep forgetting to measure when I'm home..

Found a hose with an offset T fitting on the end of it... Figured out that it connects between the carbs, so I yanked them out, split em and put it in place.

Also, while looking through my camera the other night, I found a pic of the carbs before I initially removed them that I never uploaded to photobucket..

Now they are plumbed properly again.

Just gotta figure out how the shit to put that stupid damn air filter box back in place now..

Current McGyver idea is to find a sleeve that will fit tight around the carb intake, but stretch enough to also fit around the air filter exits.. it might sit about 1/2 inch taller, but fuck it, I want this thing running.

Bought a battery tender for it yesterday, it turns over, you can hear the "whump" sound and I've got spark. just need this damn air filter back on, so I can put the tank back on, fill it up and try to fire it up..

Personally I would ditch those set of cali carbs abd get a non cali set of carbs. Less head aches and easier to diagnose future problems. Cali carbs are a lean or too rich issue. Always a pain to get setup properly.

Thanks for the heads up, I haven't even touched the POS in at least a year.. Almost got my Volksrod back on the road, once that happens, I'll have garage space to tear into the bike again..
