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?

A bit of seafoam is a good idea. For the winter there are lots of little camps.

Some say just fill with gas.

Fill with gas with stabil in it.

Turn the petcock to off and run the bike till it dies. Carbs should be dry then.

Extreme cases would be to just remove from the bike. Some people do this along with the gas tank and side panels.
