I always run the gas out sense my bike is stored outdoors in our shed.. Obviously its in the shed and closed in, but no heat or air conditioning. I can't have the risk of gas freezing in the lines or anything.
Everyone says that if I open up the airbox then I need to rejet the carb to add fuel to the mixture..
