Hello To All , I just was putting around on my K5 and decided to shut the petcock and let the carb run dry and I noticed the RPM's starting climbing higher and higher !! It reached a point where it started scaring me a little and I hit the Kill switch ... why does it do this ?? Is this normal ?? This is the second time it's happened ... Thanks for your help !! Tim

Yeah don't do that anymore....what happens is its leaning itself out, starving for fuel...sucking more air than anything.
When you wanna drain the carb, just pull the 17mm bolt off the bottom of the bowl...that'll get most of it. If you take the carb off, there'll still be a little inside, which you can get out by just rotating it in your hand....or with carefully with compressed air.
