Take the carburetor off. It is very easy. When it is off you can also disassemble and clean with ease. No risk of dirt or debris going where it shouldn't.

you dont have to take off any cables, just leave then on with the carb haining there. if you just need to take off the boddom, called the float bowl, then dont remove it

You can change the main jet and pilot jet easy. just loosen carb clamps on both sides and tip carb. then remove the large round 17mm nut on bottom of carb and you can get to the main and pilot. for the needle you need to remove the seat and tank to access the top of the carb.

I just did my carb yesterday because my idle jet was plugged. My 06 is a pain in the ass I had to take off the seat, the tank, and the entire sub-frame just to get at it.

Oh nonsense. I just replaced my pilot yesterday. It too 20 minutes total on my 07. Did my main last week. I snapped the main off and then had to remove the carb and THAT is a pain but assuming you do not botch it it is quite easy.

Remove the 17mm drain, loosen both carb boots, rotate the carb so the bowl is facing out towards the chain side, remove the front sprocket chain guard to give screwdriver or extension room, then swap the jets.

Are you serious? The post right above yours spelled it out. Here...

Remove the 17mm drain, loosen both carb boots, rotate the carb so the bowl is facing out towards the chain side, remove the front sprocket chain guard to give screwdriver or extension room, then swap the jets.
