Try to avoid removing them. Most Carb problems are caused by water. Look for a drain plug in the carb bowls, remove the plug and flush the carbs with methylated spirits via the fuel pipe hose. Remove the air cleaner box to gain access. Check there is no water in the tank by draining fuel into a glass jar, water and fuel dont mix you will see if any is evident. A small amount of metho added to the tank will dilute water to help it pass through the system. After flushing and before replacing air cleaner bow, start the motor and raise the RPM, then block the mouth of each carby in turn to use the engine vaccuum to '**** through' any small debris. Before replacing air cleaner box study the way the carbs are mounted in case you have to remove them. Remove carbs as complete as possible and clean the bowls and jets from underneath, try not to disturbe the adjustments as a full tune up will be necessary if they are not in sync. Carbs are often dismantled only to find the problem is electrical which is way more common.
I hope this helps you

S50 suzuki misses and pinging

The pilot (primary) jets could be partially blocked and check for airleaks either at inlet rubbers or airbox to carb rubbers. My first thought is carb pilot jets. Wouldn't hurt to do a compression check as well.

Smoking and running b ad

Rebuild the top end. Rings are stuck to the pistons. Grind the valve seats in the process. You have now eliminated the smoking and some of the bog.

Now clean the carbs and install kits. Thoroughly servicing the carbs will eliminate the bog.

Clean or replace the air filter, change engine oil > 10w40 motor oil. Lube and adjust the chain and all cables. Install a fresh set of stock NGK spark plugs and check for spark. Balance and sync the carbs. Be certain the battery is good and strong. Lastly, remove the water trap from the bottom of the gas valve,( petcock ). If the bowl has any water and or rust in it, clean it out. Now remove the entire fuel petcock and clean it up so gas can flow freely. Clean up the inside of the tank as best possible. Re-assemble the petcock etc.,

Doing the above will put you back on the road for a very long time.

Please rate this solution as a "FixYa" if able. Thanks!
