How much gas do you need to burn off before you lift your tank up using the hinge

I've done it 100% full.

I raised it up high enough to change my air filter and remove airbox. No problems.

I used a piece of pvc pipe as a prop rod and left at @ 45 degree angle.

Obviously better empty, but this was was doable.

Mark, I think the modern talks are sealed to the point to where you could turn it upside down and not leak.

In fact, there are stories of where tanks bulged, or ruptured after being in the sun. This must mean they are sealed tight?

Especially my cal emissions bike. Even the vapor gets cycled back through the system.
