    Yes u can do it, cleaning procedure is usualy mentioned on Carb cleaner bottle.
    Steps are as below,
    1. Remove Air filter.
    2. Start the engine & warm up.
    3. Rev up engine ~6K Rpm & puff Carb cleaner direct into the air intake duct from air filter housing while remaining same throttle.( When u will puff cleaner in to intake engine RPM will goes down but keep remain on same throttle position & keep spraying with intervals & dont let the engine stop).
    4. After 7 ~10 puffs of cleaner let the engine rev on same throttle for 5~10 sec & then release the throtle.
    5. Stop the engine.
    6. Get the Fuel Cork on off position & open the drain screw & let the fuel flush in some container.
    7. When all fuel drains from Carb turn the Fuel cork in On position & let some more fuel to be drain through & then stop it.
    8. Put the Drain screw back.
    9. Put the Air Filter Back.
    Now the bike is ready to perform.

    Carb cleaners are just a waste of money and time in my opinion. if the float bowl is clogged with dirt/debris where do you expect it to go apart from inside the engine itself? there is no magic wand to do that for you other than doing it manually. and carbs are a piece of cake to disassemble and assemble back, regardless of how factory sealed you expect the carb to be it will need to be disassembled to be cleaned today or tomm.

    Yes the procedure is same for all Carby machines including Car Motorcylce etc. The drain Screw is placed on bottom of Carburator on lowest position & can be trace easily.

    About two years ago I posted the same question on an American motorcycle forum and got the reply DON'T DO IT. The reason given were that carbourator spray works in a strong way and may damage some parts of the carbs along with cleaning the dust/carbon. So a better way is to open up the cabs and clean with petrol. Even using the WD40 spray is not advisable.

    The Rubber parts in particular can easily be damaged, be it choke plunger seals, throttle valve seals, butterfly seals, intake manifolds etc. but apparently nowadays people don't believe in advice of common consensus and rather feel their problems will be relieved by some magic wand in a blink of a second.
