    Draining Gas Tank

    I was hoping someone had pictures of how to drain the gas tank.

    On the right hand side of the bike, the fuel line meets the throttle bodies (17mm socket needed). Raise the tank on it's prop and if you can get someone to help all the better as you 'll need to unscrew the banjo bolt and quickly (without losing the washers......there are 2 so keep an out for them, one either side of the threaded part). pull it through between the throttle bodies (as it's fed between them from the left of the bike) do this part as quickly as you can as it will piss fuel everywhere, and lower it into your container...........easy peasy mate!!

    As you lift the tank you will see to the left (as if you are sitting on the bike looking forward) the main fuel line with the disconnect. Disconnect it and you'll then be ready to connect the adapter in your kit. Ensure that you have the tail of the adapter pipe already in a fuel can as once you connect the fuel will start to flow out.

    disconnect the white quick release union in the middle of the fuel feed pipe no fuel lost undo the union bolt on the t/bodies a small amount will be lost then put the banjo end in a container reconnect the quick release connector you might have to turn the ign on to start the pump to empty the tank
