Draining the carbs

I have a brand new 250zzr. It is my first bike. I want to drain the carbs for storage but I don't know how to. Does anyone have pictures of this?
Thanks for any help you can offer.

I generally leave the gas in the carbs but treat the bike with a fuel stabilizer, the theory being that a bike with no gas in the carbs will allow rubber bits in the carburetor to dry out. I dunno if there's any truth to it.

There should be small brass screws on the bottom of the carbs, probably by a nipple for draining the gas. Be VERY CAREFUL to not strip these screws, they're probably hex screws.
