    Go see the guys at retro moto (or somewhere with an ultrasonic cleaner)
    Spend the money to do it properly and get them ultrasonically cleaned.

    My baby blade carbs came back so clean you could eat off them.

    I spent hours fucking around with carby cleaner and bits of wire trying to unblock jets before dropping them off...
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
