Hi John, and welcome. \./8

You could use a simple engine degreaser like "Gunk" in a spray can, or Simple Green. Spray, let sit for a few minutes, then hose thoroughly. Make sure not to spray directly onto the carburetor or muffler as you don't want to take a chance of getting water inside anything. Good idea to run the motor afterwards till dry.  ;D

I have done it on a few air cooled engines and it does help with keeping it clean as well as drop temps a bit.  I had a go kart tour in Ketchikan with 125 karts we tried everything to make them last longer. Polishing was one that did help on 3 different areas oil leaks or other problems easy to find, corrosion deterrent being on the ocean, cooling and its shiny factor.
