Since my first post in the newbie section I've read up on everything to do with carbs. Thanks for all the info. luckily my bike purchase included both the Clymer and Kaw. Service Manuals. My plan is to do the carb drain thing and compare the quality and amount of fuel released from each. I thought about removing the bottom plate from each carb for inspection while they are still on the bike, unless that is a waist of time? Please advise. If I have to I'm willing to pull the carbs and give them a cleaning. I want it fixed right. Can anybody recommend a brand name for the soaking solvent? in case. Thanks for any advise in advance.
