Gas Shut Off

I have a 450 Sportsman, I don't ride it for a couple of weeks at a time. My question is do you shut the fuel off and then run the motor till it stops or do you just park it and start it up in a couple of weeks.

wayyyy better then turning the gas valve off and running till it dies (which i wouldnt do) is putting fuel stabilizer in the gas tank and running the motor for 5 mins or so so the fuel stabilizer gets all the way through the carb and a battery tender (read: no charger, there is a difference, if you dont know, just ask) on the battery....then you will be good to go. can leave the fuel valve open

dont forget to read the stabilizer instructions you need to add stabilizer every 3 months for 1 year the you have to dump the tank and replace the gas after that
