Need help getting gas out of my tank - March 20, 2009, 12:52 PM

Anyone one local have a Gas syphon (sp?) that could come over and pull all the gas out of my tank. Im taking the entire bike apart to start prepping for paint, and the last stel I have is to disconnect the fuel line from the gas tank, however, I have a lot of gas in the tank.

Anyone think they could give me a hand with getting the gas out?

When I drained the gas out of my SV tank, I just unbolted the top bolts, and bottom (hinge) bolts, then disconnected my electrical, and last disconnected the fuel line (no fuel should come out, since it only purges/flows when the fuel pump is in on, if it does, just hold your finger over it before you get to a bucket) then once you have your tank off of your bike, go over to a bucket, fuel can, whatever and just dump it out of your fill cap, the remainder you can get when you unbolt your fuel pump, you can then get the rest

since you're painting it anywayz, you're going to have to remove the tank, so i think the first idea would be easiest, or...

If there is alot, just get a bucket, put it next to your bike, and syphon it out using a tube and some gravity (just google syphon gas, or syphon), I usually just put a hose in the tank, then pull it through the other end using my good ole' lungs hahaha

Alright, got all the panels and gas tank off. Syphoning the gas was much easier than I expected. I have started to remove the red decals and they are a PAIN IN THE ASS. Using adhesive remover, and a heat gun, and there still a MOFO to get off. So im done for the day, unfortunatly I work all day tomorrow, but will be back at it after work on sunday.
