    Exclamation 2002 SUZUKI INTRUDER 1500 VL- old gas maybe

    Guys-
    I got a problem. I think that my bike won't fire up because i got old gas in the tank. I don't know how to drain that old gas. Tank is almost topped off. Today I'm gonna put as much new fuel in it without any overflow and maybe Lucas fuel additive/cleaner. Hope it works, it belches like it wants to run great.
    Chet

    The fuel tank is at the bottom of the bike and a real pain to get to. Your best bet for draining is to syphon out as much as you can through the fuel fill opening.
    How old it the fuel, anyways? If it is old enough to not fire, you may need to have the carbs cleaned, as they will gum up with the old gas. For furture reference, if the bike is going to be sitting more than three months put some fuel stabilizer in the tank, run it long enough for the mix to get to the carbs, then shut it off for the winter.
    You MUST obey the pug dog!

    Thanks bro. The gas is at least nine months. I kinda screwed the pooch. When my little girl Isabelle came along, there just wasn't the time. No more excuses though. I'm ready to ride.
