carb cleaning for dummies

If 89gixxer11 sends me his carbs to clean and install a jet kit, ill take pics of each step and make up a nice little "how to" to show how to clean your carbs and install a jet kit....Its pretty easy and all different makes of bikes are just about the same so even though its a gsxr , a zx or a R1 will look just about the same...

I love carbs. You are talking carburetors, right. The one bad thing about them is they always seem to fail when gravity stops working.
