Default Carburetor problem

Hi all, am looking for some help and advice. I have a 00 Suzuki gs 500e with only 5000 Mls showing that was left standing for a long time. The carburetors are completely seized wit no movement what so ever and are corroded very badly. Does anyone no if other carbs from other models could be swapped and used as I.m unable to locate the same year carbs. Thank you

You could try boil them in diluted lemon juice. Remove all plastic and rubber parts. Then rinse with hot water after
boiling.

Have you tried putting them in a furnace at 2000 degrees?

Have you tried all Irish breakers? UK breakers? Partfinder?
