  1. I am looking for the correct way to clean carbs and re sync them.

    Please help me out with step by step instructions.

    I already have them off the motor.

    thanks everyone

    I cleaned mine around three years ago and she's been running great ever since. I was careful not to change any linkage adjustments to avoid the sync procedure, and was able to take them apart without tearing any gaskets. I used an infant nasal syringe to squirt Yamaha carb cleaner through all the holes I could find, then blew them out with keyboard cleaner. The gasket pattern clued me in to some really small holes that I missed on my first pass. Get a magnifying glass. Take a lot of pictures during the process.

    This may not be the "correct" way, but 150 hours of operation without a problem says I did something right.
