proper tank degassing without damage or stress

ive searched all over for this sorry if i missed it but i have a new ninja sl pro v2 and i was to remove two shims but i still gave 1.5k left in it.

ive read other people using remote lines or their asa to bleed it out but i dont have a remote line or macroline and i dont know if using my axe's asa is good idea.

am i just supposed to press down the ball and let it rush out? the ball is pretty difficult to push.
should i dry fire to get it a bit lower? will dry firing empty the tank completely ?

i just want to be absolutely sure theres absolutely nothing left in the tank before i try taking off the reg.
help me out please ive never done this before

It won't necessarily hurt anything but I don't like just letting it all rush out at once. I prefer to purge slowly with a remote line or ASA. Since you don't have access to a remote line and don't want to use your Axe Asa (If you did I don't think it would hurt anything if you just go slow) then your best option is to just dry fire it. 1.5k isn't that much and once it gets where it seems to be empty, take the tank off and use something to push the ball down until the remaining air comes out. It should be much easier to depress then. Like you said just make sure it's completely empty before removing the bonnet.

The bolt is somewhat of a flat edged piece that is quickly/suddenly depressing the detents when dry fired. With a spherical ball the contact/pressure is gradual and when the bolt reaches the detent it is already depressed by the ball. While dry firing isn't the absolute best thing and could cause some wear and unnecessary use of your battery/solenoid, it's not going to hurt it much considering the amount of air you have left. You also don't have a lot of options if you want to change out shims before playing next time. If you are worried about your detents just take them out before. 1.5k is what around 300ish shots? Not going to be a big deal to your battery.

Ah, thanks BP. Keep forgetting the bolt goes by the detents.
