I'm looking to clean my carbs, first time ever fooling with them. I have a manual and have read up on it a lot. Pretty sure I can do it but if something goes wrong I do have someone I can call to help me out. Question is...I don't have a garage or shed to work in. Would have to do this outside. I'm just worried that I would have to leave over night, I could bring all the pieces inside a shed overnight but would it hurt anything if just covered for the night?

Put something over the intake ports after you remove the carb(s) just to keep anything from getting inside there. A clean shop rag or even paper towels will do. If I was going to leave it like that for a while, I'd probably tape them in place.

Well considering My bike has never even seen the inside of a garage. I think yours will be OK covered overnight. My main work area is a dirt driveway. Just lay a tarp under the bike so I don't have to sit in the dirt, and rags to keep dirt out opening from removed parts . My cleaning area is my backyard deck.

If I may make a suggestion,

Use sandwich bags to store each part you take off. Something are easily lost and remember which carb is for which cylinder (That is if you disassemble them completely)
