Take them off, and get heavy duty brake cleaner. Pull the jets out and spray them. then, spray the carbs all over. DO NOT GET THE BRAKE CLEANER IN YOUR EYES!

a friend said all u have to do to clean the carbs is to clean the bowl then the throttle body. u dont even have to touch the jet needles. but a guy is gonna come over and show me how to do it the right way and best way and i will do it myself from now on.

cleaning
1) mark what side each carb came from (mag or pto side)
2) screw fuel/air mixture screw in until snug - counting turns as you go. Write down how many for later
3) dissassemble entire carb and put parts on a clean cloth.
4) using a piece of music wire or other stiff wire - probe all orifice holes in all the parts to break up varnish deposits
5) once done - spray everything down real good and allow to dry on their own - no compressed air
**if carb cleaner passes through everything you can be sure your pretty clean**
6) reassemble
** if you inlet needle has a rubber tip (viton) apply a little bit of oil too it so it doesn't stick too the seat initially**
7) readjust the fuel/air screw - tighten till snug then back out the correct number of turns
8) put the correct carb on the correct side and you should be home free
