    They will probably have a cm of rust silt in the bottom of the bowls. My Katana did. This is the way of Suzuki tanks of the 80s. To keep it running a clean and seal with a suitable tank sealant is often the path of least frustration. But it must be done properly with right sealant else it cause worse problems.

    An in-line filter will not stop this silt. It will however kink the fuel line especially where the tap is so close to the carb inlet. Like a 4 cylinder suzook.

    Last time I did one (1983 RG250) I used POR15 tank kit. 1/2 a car kit. Will need to think about drying temps this time of year. A mate used to use an old school electrolux on blow to send warmish air through tank hole in different positions. Dont forget to re poke vent holes in filler hole tube. I forgot on my (88) GS11, and it was a bitch to get last bit in until I realised and found the holes.

    Probably a lot of YouTube videos.

    And yes, Pete will sort carbs out properly.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    With some of the older fuel tanks ... there's only a few layers of paint keeping the fuel inside the tank.

    A really good look at the inside of the tank ... by someone that knows what to look for and where to look ... might save a lot of hassle later.

    You could do it yourself and learn something at the same time https://thegsresources.com/carbcleandisp.php

    The (JIS head) screw holding the bowls, diaphragm covers and gang rails can be as tight as and difficult to remove without the correct screw driver. I have replaced all of these with socket head screws.
    The little O rings on the fittings between the carbs can be bought from a seal and bearing supply place cheap I got 16
    16 for about $4 from Seal Imports in Petone
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.
    those cheap ass bitches can do anything with ductape.

    I have just rebuilt mine, if you get stuck let me know.
    To be honest there is not a lot to it, only a few things you need to remember, like turns on the air jet.
    Other wise remove, clean and put everything back where it came from.

    Have your carbs ultra sonic cleaned... best option.
    And do one carb at a time, so the bits go back where they came from.

    watch fuel valves, they leak and can fill your crank case with petrol, buy OEM
    Air leaks... check for splits in the rubbers and make sure the clamps work.

    that is about it!
