Draining carburetor

**Honda Fourtrax 300** I know this is a simple question but when someone floads their bike and needs to drain the watery gas out the carburetor how do you drain the bowl???

Also can someone give me a rundown of the basic step to do before trying to start their 300 after it's been floaded and you need to get back. Like draining carb and air box. Getting all of the water out of the exhaust and engine. Is flipping the compression release and trying to start better. Or why do people say to pull the spark plug and try and turn the engine over that way like how does that work?

I would not crank it at all until I’m sure there’s no water in the carb or engine. pull the plug yes. Drain all cases. Did you get water in the air box? Take off the carb and see if you got water in the top end

Yep they say to pull the plug because water is not compressible it will ruin the rod to try it
