I have a little Bayou 220 that I always keep stored at the house during the off season, and swap it around with a Honda Fourtrax once all the preseason work is done in the country.
Despite running it about once a month or so during the summer, I still find myself often having to clean the carb, despite keeping a little Sea Foam in the gas. The Sea Foam works great at keeping everything else running, but granted, everything else (lawn mowers, edger, etc.) gets a good, periodic workout.
This time I found a large accumulation of what looked like small balls of jelly piled up in the bottom of the carb near the end of the power jet. Flushed it out, as well as the Jets and float valve with a good spraying of carb cleaner and she runs like new.
Perhaps I should go back to my old practice of running the carb dry at the end of those brief, summer warm ups.
