I would try using the carb clean only in the locations you need it.  Soaking
everything will remove any lubricant from the places it needs to be.  The best
bet as you already know is a complete teardown, so you might as well accept it,
grab a couple of Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier 1/2 liter bottles (alternate acceptable
substitutions: Samuel Adams Octoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest), and get to

Subject:  [turbobike] cleaning throttle bodies

Question - I've picked up a set of throttle bodies from a '84 GPZ1100.
These particular throttle bodies are a big-bore bolt up for my
GPZ750 after swapping the TPS sensor.  Anyway, they are pretty sticky - I've
cleaned them in gasoline for a few hours and they are significantly looser,
but still not returning to the closed position
as promptly as I'd like.  Anyone have cleaning suggestions?  Should
I completely tear down?  Soak in carb cleaner?
