Question carb is out, now what else should I do?

I've removed my carb to add pods...
I've cleaned it all with carb cleaner, I've changed my jets and am going to put it all back together...
what else would be easy to do, or easier, while the carb is out...anything?
I would love to do plugs but dont know what plugs to buy!
What would you recommend I do while its all out any ideas?
Thanks,
Blake

Not trying to be a smart ass but if you need a plug recommendation, it would help if we knew what bike you have.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.

If you are bored I would just go ahead and make it purdy as well. Get all the road crap out that gets in that area under the tank. A solenoid removal wouldn't be a bad idea as well and gets rid of some stuff you have to plug back in when you go to re-install the carbs. SLICKMICK i believe has some for 20 or 25. fast shipping as well.

I would get your hose that hangs on the right side up and moved out of wind as well it will effect performance.

Also, liek they said valves its also a good time to add LEDs if you want as you have the tank off and everything out of the way.
