Carb Maintenance

What's the best way to care for the carbs while they are on the bike during operational months? How about while the bike is being stored, say, during the winter, etc?

I use seefoam during operation months, then during the off season, I drain the tank and refill with a full bottle of seafoam, run the engine for about 15 minutes to make sure the seafoam gas makes it into the carbs, then turn off the bike. I did this for a 2 year storage.. all I had to do was charge the battery and start the bike. run it out of fuel, and add a new tank of fuel with the recommended dose of seafoam.
