Remove the gas line before the fuel injection and let it drain. Make sure that your gas valve is opened though so that it will flow. You can also do it from the gas selector it will drain that way also. If this helped please rate. Thank you

I actually just posted about this on my blog,
I've actually heard that it's better to leave gas in the tank while you're storing and then put some additive in it. I believe it's better for the tank. On the other hand, you probably want to empty the fuel line which involves taking out the fuse for the fuel injector then running the bike (an explanation with pictures is on the site). I did this with my '05 Dyna Wide Glide before putting it into long term storage.

How to remove harley road king gas tank fuel 2005 model

I have a 2008 Road King Classic (and have had the tank off), so maybe they're similar.
Disconnect the negative lead of the battery.

My dash has a screw under the nose of the seat (which must be removed) and one in the front.
lift dash and unplug harness.

If you have a gas gauge in the left hand gas cap, underneath tank unplug it's connector.

The fuel line has a quick disconnect. Pull fitting, and line unplugs.
There is a check valve inside to keep gas from leaking, but it's a good idea to have a catch cup, just in case some residual fuel flows out.

From there, I have a bolt on each side of the front of the tank, one in the center rear, then lift it off.

02 road king fuel problems have a half tank of fuel starts misfires and back fires though exhaust and starts hard

If you have a carb equipped bike and the bike has been lowered in the rear, you could be running out of gas on your main fuel switch position. You may have to go to reserve at that point. If the petcock is located at the front of the tank, the fuel is more to the back end of the tanks if the rear end of the bike has been lower. If it's fuel injected, I have no idea.

Good Luck

1997 flhri road king is missing running rich and popping

According to your description, your bike is a FLHRI. The "I" indicates that it is fuel injected. There are no adjustments that the owner can make to the fuel system. You'll have to take it to a shop,

Good Luck

How do you adjust fuel injection modual on 2005 road king

Well fuel injection means that the amount of fuel squirted into combustion chamber at firing mode is controlled by your CPU (your programmed bike computer) which can only be modified using a special program normally available to bike service/repair shops only.
So to answer your question, no you can not changed it unless you have a laptop with the required cabling and program to modify it plus you know what you are doing as this area is a high tech knowledge area.
To adjust it you need to take it to the specialist technicians. Good enough and answer your question?

My harley davidson road king keeps cutting out like its running out of gas or vapor locking any ideas?

I had the same problem on my 06' (Fuel injected). It was the copper filament inside one of the wire going to the injectors. It took 3 visits to the dealer and 4 hours of investigation to find it.

Fiited a k and n filter to my 2000 road king but it would not start first thing in the morning and run **** until i put the old back in again, do i have to put on the fuel pack just to have sports air...

Although I don't do fuel injected bikes, if it were a carbed bike, I would say that you would probably have to rejet the carb when you changed the air filter to a free flowing model. The same applies to a fuel injected model too, I would suspect. But, it may be within the "range" of the onboard computer you have. Take it by a shop and ask if the fuel map can be changed to accommodate the K&N Filter.

Bikes been in storage for 4 years

Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.
