    Question getting gas out of 1200 GS Tank

    I have been without power for 8 days and am down to sucking gas out of the GS for the generator...how can i get gas out of the gas tank and put it in a can without using a siphon?

    Take off the right side cover. Remove the fuel return line. Aim the line at a container. Start the engine. Be careful.

    Is it possible to stick something in the quick disconnect to open the shutoff valve so he does not have to start the bike?
    When I had a RS I used a spare male QD to plug into the fuel line to drain the tank, but I dought Pat has a spare male QD laying around.
    Good luck Pat, hope you can get some gas tonight.
