    Theres no definitive answer on how long a carb will last. If pushed and neglected too long the carbs are going to gum up and your engine will not perform to spec. Your going to get a mixed response from this crowd but I'd rebuild them now since its the offseason. This way you can ensure they will be functioning properly in the coming weeks. Good luck.

    I go through mine each and every year of riding. Usually you can just change out the rubber solid gaskets...diaphrams and clean the filter. The needle/seat usually last 2 years before I replace mine..

    Carbs get gummed up inside = blown engine

    i used sbtontheweb.com kits but most guys say stick with mikuni oem. Protec-performance.com might be worth a shot..use them for carb parts.
