Gas tank removal on V star 1300
I thought I would take the tank off of my 2007 v star 1300 so I could run some lines from the battery up to the heated hand grips, cb and heated jacket.
So if I lift the tank there is a petcock that I assume I turn to close the valve and then I should be able to remove the fuel line. But there is another line at the back that appears to run into the small tank below the seat. That line I started to remove but it appears to be full of fuel.
Can anyone tell me if that line will drain fuel all over the place if I remove it.
Do I really need to empty the tank if I want to pull it off the bike to facilitate running the electrical lines under the tank.

You will see a bit of fuel coming out left in the hose. It is normal, just drain that little fuel in an empty jar or bottle.

You don't have to empty the tank.
