Easiest and cheapest is to buy a hand pump siphon at the auto parts store. There is no bottom drain on your tank . You're able to get most of the gas out.

Have you tried just opening the gas cap then inverting the bike?

Failing that, a siphon pump is going to be your best bet.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Just like the final drive - wrap your lips around that and suck it out. Works great

I tried that, but the grey funnel-shaped thingy at the top of the filler got in the way. It took a lot of shaking to get those last few drops out...
I suggest the hand pump siphon too.
