I still couldn't/wouldn't break down and buy an ultra-sonic cleaner, so here we go with Kerosne.
Procedure I used:

Pour Kerosene into spray bottle
Spay outside and let soak for 5 minutes
Use paint brushes and toothbrush to clean
Spray outside clean
Spay inside carbs and bowls, soak for 5 minutes
Used brushes and cotton rags
Spray again til clean
Spray all with water hose
Spay all with WD-40, spray thru all vents too
Spay all with compressed air
Tomorrow, new float jets, seals, gaskets

BY the way these are off my Bandit....so they are a little different from your WC CV carbs.

Same Principle!
Kerosene does work great I've also boiled in Pine-sol for very gunked up carbs, generally go that route with barn finds from 30+ year bikes I find... In barns... (Allot of those in Vermont)
GF wasn't too happy when I turned the braising pan into the carb boiler. LOL Oh well!
Nice share and nice job on the clean!

Kerosene works really well in cleaning and removing gunk in the carb, just make sure not to over soak the plastic and rubber parts of the carb to avoid damaging them.
