I need to clean my 225 Johnsons and they are really dirty, can you use plain fuel injection carb cleaner in 2 cycle engines without damaging the engine. What else is there to add that will clean the jets of the carbs.

Yes you can use carb cleaner on the 2 stroke, just make sure you run her a little more rich than normal, the cleaner will lean it out, if it goes too far you could damage the outboard. If you can you could take the carbs off and then clean them whhile they are out rebuild them kits are pretty cheap.
