Managed to drop a 2009 on the right side while in the garage today:ashamed0001: Starts and runs as long as the choke is on and the throttle is not touched. Shut off the choke or give it gas and the engine dies. Where do I start? :confused:

The charcoal cannister (black plastic cylinder by the shock left side) will get filled up with gas when the bike is on it's side. One of the gas tank vent lines connects to the top of it. There's a bottom line that drains into the carb intake. You can take off that line to drain it or let the bike run awhile to suck out the gas.

Also look on the back of the petcock and be sure the vacuum line is seated.

Got lucky. Drained the carb float chamber and all is well. Kinda odd, have dropped it in the dirt before and no problem. Imagine I would have accomplished the same thing by letting it run. Thanks again to all who responded. :ashamed0001:
