Fuel filler drain, plugged

Went to fill up fuel yesterday, area around filler was filled with water, almost going over lip into tank. Drain hole there, but not draining. Any one else experience this? I ran flexible wire down hole but could not dislodge... ideas?
Thanks

Is it pinched at the bottom where it comes out from the bottom of the bike - by the side stand?
I've pinched it off there moving my skid plate to change the oil or accidentally getting it underneath the bolt when putting the skid plate back on.

Easy peasy! I figured as much. Did the same thing myself. Glad it worked out.

They are talking about an overflow drain, not a fuel tank drain.

There is no drainage plug, you can lift off the tank (quite a bit of work) or suck it out of the tank filler or just run it low on fuel before you get it ready for the train. You can have a couple of litre's in the tank when you go on a plane does not have to be totally dry.
