Hi Guys,

As the title suggests - how is it done please? I can't see a drain hose, so what's the next best option? Where is the outlet? So many questions! Smile

Cheers,

PTG.

Fuel tap is on the bottom right hand corner , vacuum operated , if still the original, pig to get to with the tank/seat cover still on, best to remove the cover and fuel tank and then undo 2xM5 bolts ( from memory)that hold fuel tap in.

Thank you - bottom right as you're looking down sitting on the bike?

Anyone got a pic of what the tap actually looks like. Total novice here....

If you get one of those plastic pipettes and cut the end so it will slip onto the vacuum spigot, squeeze it push it on and let go, fuel will drain from the fuel spigot.
You can also use the pipette to prime the carbs.
