    They werent soaked just sprayed. Carb spray will shoot through real easy but NOT remove scale and super hardened gas shellac. all you did was fool yourself and now they need CLEANED properly. Dont feel bad...call it another lesson learned.

    NEVER SNEAK UP ON A SLEEPING DOG..NOT EVEN YOUR OWN.


    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    You might want to check the carb rebuild tutorial and Newbie Mistakes thread linked in my signature. Rebuilding the carbs properly is easy, it just takes some time.

    I learned the same lesson they need to be rebuilt and dipped, not just sprayed, but you can use the spray to make sure all the carbs passages work properly, and the sync is very important aswell.
