That's not a great idea. Most carburetor cleaners will dissolve the rubber and plastic components of the average carburetor. The only safe method is to remove the carb off of the engine, take it apart, dip the metal parts in carb cleaner for at least three hours, wash off, blow dry and re-assemble.
