Blocked AP Circuit '99 400f

&%$#@! do I do now?
Mechanic doesn't think it is replacable, so is there any way I can clean the damn thing?
Don't really want to spend big $ on a replacement carby .....
ANY advice appreciated

Mechanic has soaked it overnight in carby cleaner.
If that hasn't helped I'll go to the hardware store today and get some fine wire and try myself.

I can JUST get fluid through the little jet. Must still be some debris in there.
During testing I also discovered that the tiny little piston on the end of my needle valve was stuck in which was causing the carb to overflow every time I attached it to the fuel line.
Glad I found out now and not when I put it back in the bike!

Finally got a good clear squirt.
Half a can of WD40 injected into the passage under as much pressure as I could manage finally burst clear and the squirt actually hit the roof of my garage!
Re-assembled the carb and got a nice squirt from the acc pump.
Put it back on the bike and it started 2nd kick. Big relief!
Next weekend will be the tester to see if the bog is gone.
Now on to the HANGING IDLE and I'll be a happy camper.
Thanks for the encouragement to keep trying.

Ap working well
Hanging idle seems to be behaving
Now have major rough running at mid throttle and immediately after a big twist.
If I chug slow and slam it open it launches (ap works) then misses and farts after 20ft and then goes again.
If I slowly open up through range it goes smoothly until 1/3-1/2 and runs rough until wide open.
I've unplugged tps and still same.
So I guess I have to take carb back out, but what am I looking for?
