How to clean carbs?

I want to clean up my carbs and have been talking to different people about what I need to do. One guy says I need to disassemble everything and soak all the parts in degreaser, making sure they're clean and reassemble. That doesn't sound too bad....

Another guy that has been involved in racing sleds since the 50's, said all I need to do is simply place the carbs in a big pot of boiling water for a few minutes and that will break up all the crud. He said the Mikuni's don't have anything internally that will be harmed by the boiling technique, like rubber seals and whatnot, and I have nothing to worry about.


I'd like to hear your guys preferred methods of carb cleaning. Thanks for helping out the newb
