I usually turn fuel selector knob to off...grab a plastic five gallon gas can.. follow the main fuel line from the selector petcock to the fuel filter and take it off and put the line from the tank into the gas can and then turn the selector to "reserve" position. This will usually drain up to 99% of all the gas in the tank. can i get a very helpful on this, thanks!

Hi just bought a BMW C R 1200, being standing for long , last had service 300km ago. Think could be petrol, how would i drain. thanks Len.

When you are going to leave any vehicle sitting or standing for extended periods of time you should always drain the gas, as gas gets very funky over time. Although this may not be the problem. If you just bought the bike and it hasnt run since you bought it, I would have a mechanic look at both the engine and all of the electrical work.

There isn't one unless someone installed one afterward. There is a in tank strainer that is built into the fuel valve on the bottom of the gastank tho - remove the valve and drain the gas out completely when you do this. DO NOT put the old gas back in the bike. Put fresh gas from the gas station in. the old fuel WILL HAVE WATER IN IT.

Honda CB250 will not start. It will turn over and there is fire on the plugs and when I look at the plugs after trying, they are "wet" with fuel. What am I missing?

Valve clearance or camshaft timing. If you have no clearance on the intake valves at top dead center, then you will have no compression = no start.

I need to remove old gas from the tank. How do i do that

First, with your gas off, unhook the fuel line from the carb and route it into a container. turn the gas back on and allow it to drain as much as it will. Now, lay the bike on it's right side and remove the 2 bolts that hold the petcock to the tank. Remove the petcock(gas valve) and stand the bike up- catching the little bit of gas that comes out in a cup. One more time, lean the bike to the left and catch the last remaining bit out of the petcock hole. If you take the tank off first, this is alot easier.

Can Old gas may my motorcycle run rough and not idle?

Old gas will most certainly make the bike act up and idle bad. Drain the tank and refill with fresh gas, if it doesent run better after a few miles you will have to clean the carbs.

Old gas in 2000 R1

drain it out. fill with new fuel,and system cleaner, then flush old out of the rest of system. This is better than mixing with octain boost and running it out.(use a lenth of fuel line to drain fuel into disposal can instead of getting old gas on your bike)

Hi, My bike cuts out, coughs and splutters if I am out for more than 10 mins on a hot day. Any ideas?

Sounds like water in the gas. Bad gas at an old filling station can be the source. More likely is simple condensation in the gas tank. Drain the carbs if not fuel injected and also drain some gas from the tank.

Bike has not been started/running for almost 4 years

if this is a carburetor model, then they will have to be removed and cleaned to get all of the varnish/old gas out of the orfices in the jets.

next i would change the coolant. drain all of the old antifreeze/water out of the system and replace it with the recommended type of coolant. while there, look at the hoses to see if they look worn/old. replace as necessary. also replace the thermostat since the system is flushed.

brake fluid. drain it all out and refill with new. bleed the brakes to get it all out.

take a peek at the brake pads to see if they need replacing. now is the time to do it as the brake fluid is being replaced.

airfilter. replace it as it is probably old and paper element might be deteriorating. not worth the chance of the filter failing.

fuel filter. replace it too as the gas in there is old.

if shaft driven, have the oil changed/rear end serviced.

check the spark plugs if they look fine, then its ok to reuse. but, if you have them out, might as well replace them and start from new.

and of course the stuff you mentioned (gas, oil, oil filter, battery) needs to be replaced.
