I removed the tank and removed the petcock.
Flushed the tank several times with gas.
Take this opportunity to make sure the "Reserve" hole in the petcock is clear.

I added a clear in-line filter directly under the petcock, even though there is a filter before the fuel pump.
I use my odometer as my gas gauge, filling after riding 100 miles.
At 100 miles, I turn the petcock to "Reserve" then fill up on my next trip into town.
This keeps the "Reserve" hole clean for when I may really need it.
There are rust particles in the in-line filter.
