Sorry, we can chat bikes anyway if you want.

My first was an '81 Yamaha XS850, Midnight Special. Triple cylinder. I miss that bike.

There are a million chemicals out there, and depending on how bad things are they may help, but you'd be a lot better off pulling the carbs, however difficult it is.

No, a cleaner will not work at this stage, you will have to pull them. My first bike was a 1978 honda cb750. I still look at those bikes as new.

You're not going to find a shop that wants to take on that job.
There is just no percentage in it.

What you need is an old V4 enthusiast who might trade his time.
Start here: www.sabmag.org

Your next best bet is old gear generalist...
who needs some info on the V4 carbs in particular.

Any motorcycle shop should so it. You may not want to pay the price to get them cleaned up though. Could exceed the value of that old of a bike pretty quick

Try just taking the bowls off and take out the pilot jets and clean them. They have a tiny hole that is easily plugged by dried up gas. Usually best to take the carbs off, makes it easier to get the bowls off and clean up inside. Bowls will usually have some dried up gunk in them. Pilot jets normally come out with a small straight tipped screwdriver. You can unplug them with a couple of fine strands of copper wire. By fine, I mean fine. Take a piece of speaker wire and strip the insulation off so you have about 3" of bare stranded wire. Take two strands out of the bunch and twist them together. Once you get the pilot jets out, slowly twist the wire back and forth as you gently push it through the hole in the pilot jet. You can spray some carb cleaner through the hole once you break through with the wire. Not very difficult to do with the carbs off. Just take your time.
