My manual says to drain the gas. I have a full tank and bought some Stabil. If I don't drain the whole tank, how do I drain just the carbs? I do not have an off switch on the petcock (only res, prime and on).
Thanks for any advice!

If the petcock is working properly, set it to the run position and fuel should not flow to the carbs with the engine off. Put the bike on it's center stand or equivalent, so it is level. Look on the bottom of the float bowl of each carb you should find a screw. If the carbs don't have drain hoses attached to the bottom of the carb place a small container under the carb to catch the fuel. Loosen the screw a few turns until fuel starts to flow out of the drain. I usually use the cap from a can of spray paint to catch the fuel. It will hold enough to drain one carb.
