Hey everyone. I am a new owner of a 2000 ZR-7. Looking to do some upgrades to the lighting on the bike and I was wondering if anyone has any tips on the tank removal. I was planning to siphon the fuel out of the tank, but wasn't sure if there was a valve somewhere where I could drain the tank from. Nothing popped up in the manual when looking it up.

I'm a pretty handy person, but have not worked on a motorcycle before. Thanks for any tips.

Try a 200 mile run ! :laugh::laugh:

There's no need to drain the tank before removal.
The fuel tap turns off when the engine is not running.
A full tank is heavier though!

And set it on some blocks of wood so the weight is not on the petcock.

If you really must drain the tank, get a vaccum pump and attach it the small hose from the tap. Apply vacuum and direct the outlet hose into a suitable container.

Why bother with all that phaff of finding a vacuum pump. . . . . . just turn the fuel tap to "prime"
