I'll bet you're getting tired waiting for an answer, those crickets are getting awfully loud!If the fuel in the bowl has already disappeared, I'd let sleeping dogs lie. No reason to fill it up again just to have it evaporate. Back in the day when I had a carbureted bike with a fuel spigot, I'd close the spigot and run the carb dry after putting Stabil in the tank. Harder to do that these days!Here's a question I've been wondering about myself. Back in the day when most bikes had a steel tank, the last thing you wanted to do was drain it when storing, you'd get rust. So, you'd fill it to the top and stabilize the fuel. Nowadays, though, many bikes have plastic tanks, which won't rust...not to mention the fact that it might be better to get everything in the fuel train away from the oxygenated fuel that can degrade components. If you don't have a steel tank, it might just be better to drain it completely rather than fill it up to the top.-Rob
