how can i spray carb cleaner while running

Amsoil has a foaming carb/injector/intake tract cleaner that you spray while it is running. however I don't know where to spray it, i tried spraying it in the airbox from behind the front wheel and it just dripped out. is there a vacuum line that feeds all carb's evenly that i can spray this stuff into. its supposed to do a really good job at cleaning stuff out.

it says to take the filter out before spraying, but if you spray it after the filter then it won't matter.

I would pull the air box off and spray it directly into the carbs.

With my CBR carbs, there are two areas that get gummed up. The piston/needle and walls, and the idle jet. Spraying carb cleaner in the mouth of the carb may clean 1/4 of the piston. To do it right, and get the same snap as fuel injected bikes, the carbs have to come out for cleaning and adjustment. And like most carbs, taking off and installing them is 3/4 of the job.
