My ZX6 ran fine earlier this year without a problem, or so I thought. I hadn't driven my ZX6 since August due to being sick. I just went to drain the gas from the carbs the other day (Using the drain screws on the bottom of the float chamber) as I have done every year since new. Starting from the right side (As if riding the bike), When I drained the first 2, there wasn't a problem. Gas came out & drained as usual. However, when I drained the next two, no gas came out at all from them.

I have never experienced this situation. Does anyone know or have an idea as to what might have happened, or what I may check? I have never had a problem with the bike.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Could be blocked or no fuel in the bowls. Put it on prime with all the drains open and see if fuel comes. If it's on the side stand fuel should come out the 2 carbs on the left side first. If you can't get any fuel to flow you probably have a carb cleaning in your very near future.
