    you should only have to take out the drain plug i would assume. You shouldnt have to pull the four bolts unless you want to remove the pump.

    Are you having a hard time understanding? If so I can try to simplify it for you.

    Unplug the fuel pump and start bike until it dies. Then hit starter button for 3-4 seconds to get the rest of the lines clear.

    Then unscrew the drain plug.

    look behind your left (shifter side) heal guard/footpeg at the base of the frame. should be a plate with wires and a hose going to it. then follow the diagram i made.

    Connector is a 13mm or 1/2 and the drain plug is the same. I think you are supposed to take the four allen screws out so you can pull the pump far enough from where it is on the bike to get a funnel under it and put the fluids in an epa approved container...**** that.

    Already drained it out, of course, I found out that if you just turn the fuel pump on and off you can drain it like that, would just take forever.
