I did not mean straight down the throat Dave,
back when I had the '94 and the carbs filled up with flowery sand in Western Arizona, I used Carb Cleaner to spray directly into the little tiny passages, until I got all of the openings spraying fuel ...

I didn't have a choice, the bike would not run faster than about 900 RPM, took me several hours to get it running again, without taking them off.

That particular problem was because the prior owner had installed a K&N air filter on it, and the carb box would not fit right, so he left the gasket out from under the air filter box.... I could see a 1/4 inch of light all around the top of the carbs....

once I got it going again, I bought a Honda air filter and fixed it right.
