I have a move coming up and need to drain the fuel tank. How do I do that?

Either syphon it out of the tank, or remove the fuel line from the carb and run the line into a gas can and open up the valve.

I don't have a carb and there's a fuel pump in the tank. So either I need to hot wire the fuel pump and run it into a bucket, or syphon it out.

I just had to do it about 3 times lol Easiest way I found was to take off the two bolts holding the tank on each side, take off the mudflap under the tank. Flip it vertically up and put a 20L bucket under it. Loosen the 4 bolts that hold the pump and let it drain out. No need to take out the fuel pump, but if you are there might be worth to change the fuel filter.

Good luck.

Forgot to mention, take the rear tail piece off and you might wanna loosen the airbox. 20 min job tops.

Dang... that's a lot of work. I'll try the syphon first.

I'm military and this is going into an overseas move, so all fuel has to be drained and battery unhooked. Bike will be crated and shipped from Hawaii to Virginia on a boat- so it'll be awhile....
