Carb cleaning

I'm thinking that my carbs need cleaning. I'd prefer if I could do the job myself, but I want to make sure that I don't screw anything up. Can anyone send me directions for doing so or point me to a website with instructions. Also is there anything I should be warned of before I even attempt this project? Do any of the (lazy way) fuel additives you can by at an autoparts store really work? I assume the effectiveness of these additives is rather limited, so I would like to disasemble and clean them manually.

Re: Carb cleaning

What kind of carbs? If you have a service book for your sled it explains everything!
Just got done cleaning a set of 36mm flat-slides for a friend, pretty dirty,idle circuit was plugged on one ran rough until 6000rpm...
Now it runs great, smooth response all thru the band...V-Max 500 Good luck!

Re: Carb cleaning

I have the manual, but it says something stupid like " consult your dealer ". Yeah right! I want to do it myself, save a buck and learn something in the process. Do you have any suggestions on where to look for a repair manual? Anything online?

Re: Carb cleaning

Your best bet is to invest in a manufacturer service manual. It will give you all the basic specs, and procedures. They also give you tips like don't soak Kehin carbs in a carb cleaner tank, spray them only. I think you will be much farther ahead to just buy the good book.
