Help with a carb rebuild on XR650L?

Anyone near Chattanooga that can assist me in rebuilding my carb? The bike sat for about 11 months as I could not ride in 2013. I did drain the bowl and tank before storing. Ran down my battery tonight trying to get it fired. I have spark and compression. Think maybe the jets got gummed up. I can pick up any necessary parts as long as I know what to get. Thank you for any and all help in advance.

Christian

You shouldn't need anything parts wise. You may need to take the carb apart and soak it in some Pine Sol overnight, then blow out the passages and jets with compressed air. The jets may need a piece of wire(guitar string or similar) run thru to clean out the passages. If you can access an ultrasonic cleaner they do well at loosening up crud after a long soak. Then blow out.

They are pretty simple to take apart. If you need more help post up in this thread...

You'll get better replies there.

Thanks, Bwalsh..I am familiar with the XRL thread. Was looking for some assistance locally not just the interwebs.
