Typically, I will just take a spare fuel line and fill it with carb cleaner or brake cleaner. Then grab the ole' air gun and pressurize the hose. 125psi will crack the valve off the seat and you can get an idea of what the spray pattern looks like.

Now you better secure the injector in a vice or something otherwise it will get kinda ugly.

Now if you really want to get sophisticated you can use an standard CIS fuel pump and build a test rig. Then you can feed a continuous level of cleaner through the injector.

I have also soaked them overnight in lacquer thinner and blown them out with compressed air. Typically that will dissolve most of the carbon deposits.

This does not replace proper stand cleaning and flow balancing, if you are planning on stepping up the performance. If that is the case, you should send the injectors out to someone who can flow and balance the injectors.
