siphon hose
I really don't want to drink anymore gas. I must have consumed about 5 gallons over my lifetime..................but, if that's it..........I guess that's it.

I'm in the same boat with my MS with it's EFI. A longish piece of clear vinyl tubing makes it easy without getting a mouthfull of gas.

Just pick up a hand pump siphon from an autoparts store, probably under $10 and doesn't come with the bad after taste.

does it not have a pet ****?

if it does just take the hose off the pet **** and run a different hose down into a gas g\can and turn the petcock on..... it will take some time but it will drain..

also make sure your gas cap is off. makes it flow better

Depending on size of hose (I to would suggest clear) you can push it into the tank as far as you can hold onto it and then put a finger over the end and withdraw from tank. Should hold fuel in it and once below levl of fuel in tank wa-la your siphoning. You really dont want to know how I know this right? Plan B is what the fellow said about diconnect fuel line and turn on key. For the most part as long as there is fuel in the tank it is suposed to cool the pump. C= drill 1/2 hole in bottom (not recomended but it works)

I'm not being constructive, but I think it's funny that you can't say petcock as two words. Pet ****.

Anyways, maybe you could disconnect the fuel line and let it drain? I'm not sure if that would work or not.

Or you could tape the throttle open the whole way and then start the bike in neutral. Leave the garage open and hit the couch!

Don't listen to me.

Most fuel injected bikes don't have that. They have a fuel pump mounted in the tank, and a direct line from there to the injection. Pulling the fuel line only empties the line, the tank won't empty without the pump running.
