I would say the best way is to flush it out, take everything out of the case, flush the case and hit it with a compressor for a fair bit of time. Then replace everything except the case, carb, button and cooling head.

That would be the "best" way?

Take it apart & soak/flush in a tub of fuel then blast with brake cleaner.But if you know dirt has gotten in you know it has gotten to your bearings & rod bushing already.

Are you serious with this? What did you do to that poor v-spec now? Best way is to not get dirt into it to begin with.

Take motor apart

Rinse every part clean with motor spray

Use the crank to spin and flush grit away from main bearings

i would recomend just taking the filter assembly off and running it in the sand...That V-spec must be bullet proof and made of kryptonite...

Hell you probably could just fire it up and hold it wide open the submerge it in the bath tub (i call it auto clean) ....through in some bubble soap for some extra flare!!

JK!!

Let me guess... you didn't ziptie the filter tube around the carb neck, and it came off?
