I have a Mikuni VM30 float type carb with slide throttle that sat for a year with gas (this is before I got it running again from a complete idiot[xx(]). I tore it down, will any on the shelf carb cleaner work or is there ones I should avoid?

Depending on the conditions it onlt takes a few months. If your carb is varnished have your carb cleaner ready, as soon as you remove the floatbowl spray it good. The air will increase the rate of transformation.

Make sure to get EVERY hole in ALL the jets perfectly clean! You don't want any of them to get plugged or you'll lean out and go.............POP!
