Pumper carb have a bowl drain?

Recommended Posts

 When my bikes would sit too long and not start, draining the carb always got them going.

 Now my 400's sat for about a month and won't start.  Do I have a drain on this thing? MIkuni 36mm.

Just the plug in the bottom of the bowl.

I do the same with my XR, except, when mine has sat that long, I don't even try to start it, I drain the bowl first rather than try to get the engine to run on the crap thats in there.

I noticed that also on mine. No separate bowl drain on the pumper. Turn gas off and lay the bike on it's side for a minute. That's the easiest way I can think of.
