    there are 2 hoses attached to the fuel valve and a fuel gague wire under the tank that has to be unplugged when lifting the tank. First remove the 3 allen bolts holding the meter on and unplug it. then ubolt the seat starting with the rear seat allen bolt at rear of seat. this will expose the front seat allen bolts remove front seat then the 12 mm headed bolt at the rear of the fuel tank. Unplug hoses and wires as mentioned and lift tank off. Inspect small hose well, this hose is bad about rotting and will cause a loss of fuel delivery from the tank.

If it's been sitting for two years, you need to clean the carburetor. The gasoline has evaporated in the float bowl and the residue has clogged the jets.

Good Luck

Backfiring on decel

If this is a new condition and you've not worked on the bike recently, I'd try a dose of StarTron in the gas tank. It will eat the sludge that grows in fuel systems exposed to gasohol. Put it in the tank, ride a few miles to get it into the carbs, and then let it sit overnight. It has special enzymes in it that do the job. Seafoam is a good product but is not designed to clear bacterial sludge.

Bike sits a lot,Hard to start, will only continue to run with choke on. Bike backfires alot.

You need to clean your carburetors. The ethanol that is in gasoline turns to an orange colored film
and it clogs the jets. The prevention for this seems to be seafoam added to your gasoline after your carbs are clean.
It does work. If your bike sits a lot, i would also suggest that you start it up weekly and let it warm up. Sitting is the worse thing for gasoline.
Judging from your description and other problems, the backfire is probably bad gas not burning and igniting in the cylinder when overloaded with gas.
A good carb cleaning, consists of taking the carbs off the bike, taking out all the jets and soaking everything in a good carb solution.
I would start with the carb cleaning, drain the old gas out of the tank, start with fresh 93 octane and add the recommended dose of seafoam listed on the back of the botlle to your gasoline.
Put a set of new spark plugs in it, and fire it up.
Your back fire should be gone as well.

No I took the cutoff off the tank and gas comes out of the tank fine and the cutoff seens to be working, dose it have a fual pump?

Yes your bike has a fuel pump. Probably located under your seat. Follow the fuel line that goes from the tank and it will take you to the fuel pump.

Water not geting hot

When the water does not get hot it is generally either the heating element in an electric tank, or the gas igniter in a gas tank.

Dies on idle

clean out your fuel system, its starving of gas. thats why you have to run it on choke as the choke reduces the air thus richening the gas/air mix. if you are in the USA get Berrymans B12 fuel additive, double the dose and throw it in the tank, shake bike a bit to mix it in, run it til hot then put it away overnight, then try again next day. check and inline fuel filters too.
