Draining Carb

Hello, Would like to drain the carb before the start of the season (NJ). Where are the drain plugs located? Are there 2 on the bottom of each carb? Have a 2003. Any pics would be a huge help. Glad to be on the site! Thanks in advance.

Sorry no pictures but the drains or on the very bottom of the carbs. They are the allen set screws just above the tip that is at the bottom of the carb. Put a plastic tube on the tip and have the fuel drain into a glass jar, so you can see what has come out of the drain.
To refill the cabs,disconnect the vac line from the petcock and apply suction. This opens the petcock valve to refill the carbs.
