Cleaning carbs video!

I love this guy's Youtube channel. He shows you how to work on almost anything on a bike. Today he uploaded, of all things, how to clean a 94 vulcan's carbs! It is a long one, but beautiful.

Just pulling the jets on my bike for size inspection,the carb cleaning video is very help full, especially as I'm attempting this with the carbs on the bike,FUN FUN FUN.

I gave in and pulled out the carbs, pilot jet; 38 Main jet;120. It might be time for a change.

You have 120 mains in an OEM vn750? Are the needles original?

I pulled mine and went ahead and videod. Mostly it's the pulling but you might find something helpful. For re-installing read the description on video 3. Blame my girlfriend.

Part 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmlgqO3MFl0
Part 3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZkoQMljjSE

To my credit, I did some of it AT NIGHT!
