besides some small funnels, small enough to fit in the fuel line, what else do I need to do this job? I will be using the Yamaha carb cleaner solution mixed with gasoline, per the instructions. Any thoughts from others who have done this?

I am most concerned with draining the fuel bowls properly and then getting them filled with cleaner and draining again. Words of advice are appreciated!

79 GL. Yes, I am asking about how to do the procedure. Mostly, how do I draing the float bowls and how do I "tap" them since it seems impossible to get in there with a rubber mallet of even a small size. What have other people done?

I never did the procedure, but I suppose you could remove the float bowl drain screws (the brass one's at the bottom of each bowl) to drain the gas. After re-installing the drain screws it would probably be best to pour the gas/cleaner in via fuel hose closest to the carbs thereby avoiding the fuel pump. I'd use a syringe to do it rather than a small funnel.

I don't know about the tapping, but if you wanted to tap on the bowls a bit you could use a long extension or dowel with a very small hammer.
