Proper way?

well i've cleaned a few carbs before so im familiar with carbs but, does anybody know of a video that shows and explains how to properly clean a 2stroke carb? i want to make sure im doing everything right 

If you cleaned carbs before, a two stroke shouldn't be too different.


Get the float level set right and everything else is just take apart and spray out good with carb cleaner. Not much to most 2 stroke carburetors. 4 stroke carb, now there's a mess..

Did you check Youtube? I heard there are a lot of videos there.

Don't forget about the power band adjustment while it is apart!

I have a few videos and other information on my website that will help you and answer some questions.  I actually have a lot of other motorcycle how to videos as well.  Check out the main page(s) here.  I also have an entire restoration series that has lots of tips, how to, and tricks sprinkled in.  Check under Barn Fresh Restoration
