Question fuel shut-off valve

Quick question... When do you turn off the fuel valve on your sled? Do you do it overnight, or only when you're not going to use the sled for a few days? Or do some of you shut off the fuel when you go in for an hour lunch?

I always do turn off fuel accept when riding. My 91 Phazer doesn't have fuel shut-off.

I turn mine off when trailering and when storing long term, especially on my 650, that thing loves to flood out through the needle/seats.

A lot of the Poo's and ZRT's have a problem with flooding. Recommended that it is turned off for any period longer than an hour, espedcially if the rear is propped up. Recommended to turn off when trailering and when storing.

Thanks for the input. It seems like there are a lot of opinions. I think I'll keep shutting it off if I'm going to park it for more than an hour and any other time like storage and trailering. It ain't that hard to do anyway.
