Hey Pete,
     I use Castle Dragon's Breath. It's done a good job for me. Supposed to be safe for carb rubber and plastic parts. Don't know anything about the enrichening circuit, haven't had any problems with it so haven't had any reason to take it apart. Yes, the boots stay on the motor. Make sure they're tight against the head. I haven't replaced any of the pilot screw o-rings but they make an o-ring lube that I use on them when I have them out. Seems to keep them pliable. I would take the opportunity to set/equalize the float heights while I had them apart this far. Mine were off. And don't forget a carb sync when you put them back on.
