I still can't find the damn right side drain nipple! The pic Wolfe was nice enough to put on doesn't look like my right side! Bike is driving me nuts!

Should be right across from where the front one is. Examine the front carb, take mental note of stuff near the nipple and find the same thing on the other side.

I only understand what I don't understand.

something worked

I was able to do the blow back thing only on one carb, the other carb's drain screw wouldn't come out. I also ran the seafoam through the gas and after sputtering a few seconds the power was back. I took it up and down the street and it ran like it use to run. I was in a hurry to get this fixed 'cause vacation was coming up, I took it to the coast and then to the hills, so glad it's running again. And it's thanks to you guys, this made my vacation. This forum ROCKS.

DUMB Q:
Does the float bowl on the left side of the bike (as you sit on it) feed the front jug? I'm too mechanically challenged to be able to tell by looking at it!

yes the left (clutch) side carb feeds the front jug, and the Right (break) side carb feeds the rear jug.

Thats because its not exactly the same CVK (but almost identical)...still the same location....the right side drain (on the VN7xx) is slightly more angled than in this pic...but still the same place...

Its too eassily done to require a video.....I aint doin it...I mean, cmon....drain the specific carb...remove the air intake....same place the gas pisses out when ya drain, you attach a hose, and blow thru it.
