Default Ultrasonic cleaner?

I have been looking around for the best way to get carbs and parts clean. Ultrasonic cleaner looks like it might be the tool. I am seeing Carb cleaner like B12 being used and have also been told rubber doesnít like this. I have read vinegar and water being used even ammonia, without bothering the o-rings and such. I even found one with a 5 gallon bucket of cleaner and a sander strapped to it. I have to admit Iím tempted to try it. So what do you us and where did you get it.

B12 Carb Cleaner bucket.
Remove plastic and rubber first, then immerse.
Remove and blow with air compressor then reassemble.

I hope and have been watching videos were they are not separating the carbs, that is a challenge for the future.

I did not separate the carbs on my VT500C when I did the carb cleaner bucket soak. About 12 hours, then lift, rotate 180 degrees and another 12 hours to get the other side done.

It worked great and the air compressor blasted out any crud from the tiny air passages.

No damage to the crossover tube or o-rings?
