    " Hi,

    I'm not sure where the carbs you want to clean are located, but if they are installed, it's probably a bad idea.

    Carb cleaner can melt just about anything that is not metalic. A little over-spray may be OK, but if you go soaking down rubber hoses and plastic fittings, there's a good chance you'll warp, weaken, or even melt them. In the manuals I have they tell you to remove anything that is non- metal before you soak carb parts, for good reason.
