Question 1100WT Carbs

Ok, does anyone know a simple way of getting these carbs back on? I've got them mounted onto the engine ok, but I'm struggling to get the airbox rubbers to go onto the carbs...

Soften the rubbers with a heat gun, and then use lots of patience.

+1 on that! Warm them up and they go on much easier.

Also a smear of red rubber grease can help and keeping the airbox loose in the frame.
