You can try to remove crap with carb cleaner, remove air filter and hose it inside carb lines, let it kick in for some time and start engine and spray and blipp throttle and keep going and hope for the best. (Refer to cleaner instructions.)  That helped me a bit but if there is more crap it needs to be opened to clean passages.

 

In link theres pic of my -87 Loyales carb right hand barrel, low right passage was packed with crust, I suppose it might be fine oily sawdust or such and i have no idea what that passage was for but I know that kinda stuff doesn't help carb running :)

The rebuild kit is easy. Just make sure all your lines/hoses go back where they came from and are in good shape. Remove every jet and spray clear with carb cleaner, blow it thru the ports, too. Keep it clean.

If you are gonna rebuild it you might want to use screwdrivers that fit properly in jets or you can strip the soft brass heads with ease. Penetrating oil and heat should help.

I guess someday I will have to make a video of the rebuild process.
