okay, so I've taken off my gas tank and drained it completely to prepare for new paint.

my question: What do I need to do to make my bike happy when I go to start it? I'm not too familiar with fuel injected systems, and I've heard that running out of gas is a very bad thing. I assume this is a similar circumstance.

So, before I go to start it.. Do I let it sit for a day? Do I turn it on and let it sit? Do I manually flood the lines?

I'm hoping this is a fairly straight forward question. comments??

yep that should work. the pump runs for a few seconds everytime the key is switched on. and im guessing that it would only take the first try. its a very small system. throttlebodies arent far from the tank/pump.

They are absolutely correct. I've had my bike painted and it's exactly what I did, turn the ignition of and on a few times and let the pump regulate the lines.

On a side note: You are to replace the o-ring that seals the pump to your tank. It's a part that is giong to need to be ordered so do it in advance... :D
