    there's a plug, or you can chose to remove the pump @ the bottom of the frame.

    check the manual (upper menu, second link)

    There should be a manual fuel shut off valve. Take of the line on the other side of the valve. The line side that goes to the engine. If no fuel comes out, then suck on the line for a until fuel comes comes out. Have something to put all the fuel in. If that don't work then you can do what LeFox said to do.
