How to drain the carbies? GS500

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by wedge, Mar 18, 2007.

  1. On my GS500 i cant seem to find the nut that allows the carbie to be drained of fuel...does anyone know where it would be located?


  2. Towards or at the bottom of the float bowls, there may or may not be a little spout located near it.

    If you can find it (or it's too awkward to catch any draining fuel and you don't want it going anywhere, like the Ghetto Special) don't worry too much, just rip em off anyway.
  3. Ok checked mine. Left side points left, right side points right.

    It's a big one and it's right out in the open clearly visible below the frame rails.

    There is a small outlet spout on both sides.
