    hey man

    go to supercheap and buy some carby cleaner, its a spray can usually about 15$

    then get your air filter off, get your engine going, get your hand on your throttle (on the carby) and start spraying in the cleaner. the carby cleaner will tend kill your engine so youll need to keep it going with your hand on the throttle. dont be afraid to give it some revs, and be generous with the cleaner.

    carby cleaner works amazing on carbon but be aware its pretty nasty stuff so dont breath it in!

    carby cleaner is a waste of time.

    air filter off -. cover the intake with one hand rev the snot out of it with the other until it's on the verge of stalling, repeat a few times. will create a huge vaccuum and will pull 90% of the crap that stuck in the jets through

    I was told water is good also as it creates steam and cleans it out?

    do this WITH carby cleaner and youll get close to 99% of the crap out....

    i was very skeptical of carby cleaner till i actually tried it, dude its rediculously awesome.

    be careful with water, dont put to much in or youll hydraulically lock your engine....i would never put water anywhere near the intake of any engine. unless it was for fun of course and a dead engine didnt mean much to me.
