These carbs really can't be cleaned by hand, the passageways are to small. Because of that the proper way clean them, and how Honda specifies you do it, is to remove all of the jets and mixture screws. And then put the carb body in an ultrasonic machine (heated preferably) for 1/2 hour or so. And then blow it all out with compressed air. That is the only way to get the internal passageways clean. Does that make sense?

I was hoping you would reply back but it looks like you read my response and logged off. Does that all make sense to you, that the carb has to be cleaned ultrasonically? Also, did you have any further questions on this?
