Dunk Carbs in Lemon Juice with Rubbers?

I read your article about cleaning carbs with lemon juice. Do you drop all four carbs in there with the rubber o rings and all rubber parts or do these need to be removed. I have a 1986 yamaha yx600 radian and gas started coming out of the carburetor.

When boiling carbs it is safe to leave the rubber bits in. Normally I pull off the bowls, floats, and pull out the diaphragm/slide if it’s present. Pulling out those few parts makes sure you can adequately rinse the carbs out after pulling them from the juice. Then just drop the whole rack right in. Just make sure you really rinse them out and hose them down afterwards.
