Oil, snake or otherwise, is not known for it's cleaning ability. The best way to keep carbs clean is to ride your bike. Sitting is what takes out carbs.

Well, let's look and see what it is...

TL;DR version: Petroleum Distillates, phosphoric acid, and a couple of different versions of benzene.

A variation of a "motor spirit".

atf will clean too. but think about what you are combusting and the results of that on the valve guide , seat, rings and lands, causing detonation and/or pre-ignition, and lastly the exhaust system.

i would rather just service my carbs every winter.
