I have a 2005 Honda rebel 250, I’m trying to figure out how to drain carburetor. If anyone has diagram or something. I’ve been checking on google but can’t seem to find anything.

Look on the left side of the carburetor. At the bottom of the bowl (as viewed from the side) there is a screw. That is the carb drain screw. It's visible in this photo. Honda Rebel carb teardown and rebuild - jayshah (

And welcome to the forum.
I usually shut off the fuel about ½ mile from home. This allows the Rebel to "run out of gas" almost completely draining the carburetor.

Other than that...flitecontrol gave the correct method. ;)
BTW that screw is a valve.. open 2-3 turns fuel will drain out hose attached to bowl..
There is an o-ring around screw which seals fuel leaking onto engine/transmission housing
