Remove Seat, Gas tank, side covers, and airbox.
Loosen throttle cable adjuster to give free play to cable.
Loosen intake boot clamp and pick up on carbs so you can get then throttle cables off the carb.
Loosen choke cable holder and remove choke cable from carb.
twist the carbs and pull out left side of bike.
turn carbs upside down and remove the bowl screws.
Remove float pin and float and float needle.
remove all the jets, and set them in the carb bowl
turn the air fuel mixture screw in until it stops, counting the turns, remove it and place it in the bowl.
Remove the diaphram, and set aside.
Submerge the bowl with all the jets and screws in it into a carb cleaning solution.
Submerge the carburetor body in the solution.
Let set for minimum 2 hours. Depending on the corrosion it may take 24+ hours.
after soaking, wash all parts with water, and blow everything out with air compressor.
Make sure you can see through every jet and through the little holes in the sides of the jets.
make sure you can blow through every orfice in the carb body.DO NOT stick wires in the jets.
If the jets are still clogged just soak them overnight. Trust me, i've done hundreds.
Reassemble the carb and put it back on the bike.
Your carb will work like brand new.
NOTE: If you are not familiar with any of this but you still want to do it yourself. WRITE everything down and label every hose, vacuum line, throttle cable, choke cable, ONE AT A TIME.
This is very important to be successful. Take notes
