most likely. to get to the carbs you gotta remove the tank, then the airbox, and you'd have to disassemble carbs to clean em out. i suggest having a person that knows what they're doing help you out.

...wait for what the more experienced have to say.

Im no expert but I'd give them a full clean when you can. for the moment id pull the jets out soak them in clean fuel or carb cleaner and if you have pressurised air then yeah blow some through em. be carfeful you dont damage them at all tho. pretty vital bit of your bike there, the jets.

as long as they are clean it shouldn't matter how you unblock them. A can of carb cleaner from repco is only $7 though...

Could you use a fuel additive to clean it out? I know its not as good as taking them off, but still, its an idea

Thats a good idea, do you think injector cleaner would do the trick? to me that would be a long shot though, because there is nothing "forcing" the fuel through the jets, it is simply suction, and if there is a clogged jet. there would be nothing joing through it. I dunno. half cut and thinking out loud.

the word "suction" is wierd. did I spell it correctly?

There are quite a few guys on many bike forums that swear that their carb problems have been sorted by carb/injector cleaning additives in the fuel.

I've never had any luck with them :huh:....
