I'm going to soon be putting my 99 WR400 back together with new pro-moto custom pro-moto suspension, JD jet kit, etc. My question is about the carb, I'm having a high speed miss problem, and thought the jet kit was a good place to start. But (never start a sentence with "butt), I'm uncertain as to the proper way to approach the "cleaning" aspect of the process. I got hold of a bottle of that yamaha carb cleaner solvent and am worried about getting all of the pieces out that could be damaged by the solvent :D So, I want to basically "clean and ream" the thing, and blow out the circuits and start fresh according to JD. So, am I about to screw up my carb by melting some hidden plastic parts? How hard is this thing to properly disassemble and clean? I will be checking of course my nifty eBay pirated DVD repair manual, but I'm prepared to be "underwhelmed" by it's thouroughness on this matter. Sumbudy HEP me!

Gee thanx
