Question about 2007 BMW R 1200 ST
Some Sea Foam or Techron, take your pick will do a decent job cleaning your carbs, but they aren't magic. If there's a lot of gunk in your carbs, then you'll need to take them off and at least clean what you can get to. I don't know anything about your specific bike, but generally speaking, the carbs aren't too bad to take off and give a cursory cleaning. Buy the manual for your bike if you're not comfortable. There are a lot of small parts inside your carbs. DO them slowly, one at a time (in case you forget where something goes, you can check another for reference) and put the parts in a small container like an egg carton or a couple shot glasses. Adjusting your valves is a little more complicated. Someone in your area might be willing to come walk you through it for the cost of a few beers. I'm sure there's a forum somewhere for your bike. Do some googling and I'm sure you'll be able to find some help from someone who knows your bike.
