ok, its pretty easy. obviously you gotta get to the carbs. take them out (all at once). plug the intake holes in the engine with paper towels. visually clean the carbs off.
then start screwing. pretty much take every possible screw out of them. you will see a rounded plastic cap on each carb - take them off (4 screws each). carefully pull the diaphragms and needles out. next, on the other side of the carbs, take 3 screws each to take the bowls off. CAREFUL with these phillips screws - THEY STRIP. once the bowls are out you will see the floats, main jets and pilot jets. take them out. next look at the bottom hole of each carb. there should be idle mixture jets that can be adjusted. however, if you are the first one doing this, these idle jets are probably plugged with a copper washer - drill it out (dont worry its not thick. just put a thin drill in it and it will probably spin out).
This is it - you have the diaphragms/needles out, main jets, pilot jets, idle jets. now spray the hell out of them with a carb cleaner - and make sure you spray through the passages into which all these jets screw into. put it together and see what happens. replace the spark plugs too.
