I need help! I left 3/4 of a tank of gas in my scooter over the winter with no additive. Now I want to drain the tank but can't find any help in how to do this. Tried sticking a tube down the gas inlet but it go in very far. Looked at schematics but that was scary. I need suggestions please.

If the bike starts, idles and runs fine with the current gas, I wouldn't even bother draining it. I would just top it off with fresh gas and ride it like you stole it.

Seconded. It's fuel injected, and runs at about 40psi. Top it off with fresh gas, and don't be surprised if the idle is a little chuggy till the next tank, but otherwise you should be fine.

It's not too late to add a stabilizer to the gas tank, as others above said, top it off and then run it through.
