Default Fuel tank shut off 900 ace

Ok guys is there anyone who has put a fuel shut off on their 900 ace? Wanting to be able to shut fuel off and run engine til it runs out of fuel. I use a electric fuel pump to get as much gas out as I can but still canít empty. Would love to be able to add another valve and suck the tank dry
Thanks

Might not be a good idea as your internal fuel pump will still want to pump fuel. Also just ad sta bil to fuel and let it run thru system...easier.

It's very hard on electric fuel pumps to run them out of fuel, I would highly recommend NOT doing it. Suck out as much as you can, add Seafoam, run it until fully warm 3/4 bars and let it sit until next season. When next season arrives, fill with fresh fuel and be ready to go.

Why do you want/need it to run out of fuel? And have the tank empty?

Get rid of the junk gas. I always use sea foam in every tank and try to refill for storage with some race fuel cause it will keep longer

And not a fan of starting every month during off season as I believe and been told it isn’t long enough and just draws moisture

Fill the tank, stabilize it, run it. Done. No need to empty fuel; it isn't in there long enough. It will be running again in 6+ months.
