Question Drain fuel tank 05 800

Is there a easy way to drain the fuel tank on a 2005 sportsman 800 other then sucking the tank out? My 800 has old fuel in it and I'm looking for a easier way then siphoning it out.

Thanx for any input

The only way to get it all out is take it off and pour it out.

Actually, siphoning a tank is simple. Rubber bulb tools sell at Wal-Mart or Autozone for a buck or two. I cut a length of metal tube the depth of the tank so it would stand up straight and reach to the bottom. Insert the metal tube in one end of the plastic tube that comes with the tool, put it in the tank, put the other end in a suitable container on the floor/ground. Very easy and works.

Thanks for all the input, ill try and siphon the tank before removing it. The less I have to disassemble the better chance I won't break something.
