can anyone help with carbs?

Hey guys once again need some help on my bike, the carbs needed to be cleaned and I ordered all the parts it needs ( new o rings, washer, spring, screws ) its all there but there is just no way I can afford $125 plus for each carb and labor. My bike is a 96 suzuki bandit 600 with the inline 4 carbs. If anyone could help and can do it right I would really appreciate it and can pay you. Feel free to PM me or call/txt 972 268 4438 thanks guys!

The reality of the situation is this. . .If your carbs aren't dialed in your bike will not run correctly. You DO NOT want to run lean in any of those 4 cylinders. Before you disassemble that bank of carbs you're gonna want to find someone "in the know" with a carb sync tool to help you get it dialed in. If you feel that you cannot complete this job with 95% accuracy it's worth saving the money and having it done correctly. Might as well replace the fuel lines while you're in there as those 15 year old lines might not be ethanol resistant. If you rebuild the carbs without changing fuel lines you run the risk of fouling the carbs again with your first tank of fuel.

Good advice.
Also add some inline fuel filters and make sure your tank is clean.
