Carb removal

Okay, it's possible I've missed it searching so now I'm asking. I have an 05 America that I am trying to get the carb off of. Any step by steps would be great. Side note, I am fairly mechanically inclined but this is my first motorcycle so the learning curve is steepish. Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a good manual to have to help with stuff ( Haynes. . .?) Thanks guys.

@Lost_knight7 there is a good bit of knowledge for the carb version over at bonnevilleamerica.
You may find it helpful (and more labor intensive) to loosen the air box. You really have to remove all it's fasteners so it can be moved around a bit. Gives just enough room to deal with the carbs & rubbers.
The Haynes manual is very helpful and affordable.

2009 America with some modifications, a lot of fun that I can ride all day. (sold and miss my 2008 Bonneville, a great daily driver)

Appreciate the help guys! Got ahold of a Haynes manual and now have the carb off. Cleaning, replace gaskets and some new Jets and she'll be buttoned back up.
