Look at the bottom of your carb bowl and where the little rubber hose hangs down there should be a screw just above where the hose connects to the carb. To drain the bowl just turn that screw a few turns out and fuel will flow out the hose. when down dont forget to tighten up the screw.

Like borat said sometimes just draining the carbs isn't goign to cure your problem and still leave some dirt in the carbs, if its logged in a jet or float/needle valve assembly. If that is the case the carb will need to be disasembled and properly cleaned. It would be best to remove the carb, esspecially since the bowl screws can be a PITA to get out. When cleaning use a good carb cleaner and spray everything down and let some soak in the bowl, remove the pilot and main jet then let them soak for a little bit and clean them out with some compressed air. I also blow some air (not high PSI) around the carb to clear out any ports. Its pretty easy to do and by far the hardest part is just getting the carb out so you can work with it.

Take a look at THIS POST and it should help you out on getting the carb out and takign it apart, while its a different carb then on your 650 still basically the same steps and idea.
