Good question there isnt much info on this online it does appear that you should have a 1 liter capacity of reserve tank so given that u should have a reserve the best i can suggest is on most motorcycles it tends to be all the way anticlockwise is on all the way clockwise is reserve and in the center is off other than that im afraid i cant be of much help but if im wrong keep checking here someone might have a batter answer for you

My bike bike runs on main tank even on low somtimes shows some missing. I think my reserve tank doesn't work.Any suggestions?

Check the reserve fuel line and the main fuel line to make sure they haven't been switched. I purchased a Suzuki Intruder and was riding all the way to reserve to check the mileage and when I ran out I couldn't start it even though I switched to reserve. Turns out that someone had the tank off to service the air cleaner and had reversed the two fuel lines so the fuel valve was running the bike on the reserve tank tube. so when I switched to the reserve position it was hooked to the taller brass tube in the tank and the gas level was already below it. The tanks just have two brass tubes, one taller than another so gas cannot be sucked below the taller tube when on main and then when switched to reserve it sucks from the shorter tube allowing the remaining gas to be used.

Does a 2008 Harley super glide have a choke

This bike is fuel injected, therefore no manual choke. Choke or fuel enrichment in fuel injected terms is controlled by the ECM in conjunction with the engine temperature sensor. There is no 'reserve', but you will get a 'low fuel' warning light when fuel is low, same as cars.

Fuel gauge "freezed"

When checking fuel level you check resistance, the resistance changes with fuel level. You may have burned out your sensor.

How much fuel do you fill at a time??
While checking if it shows 50 to 55 KMPL there might be a problem of fuel drowning..
If you refuel your fuel tank upto the brim
(i.e.full) try avoiding that and try refilling upto 5-6 liters when your bike gets on reserve check the results..

Does a bad thermostat cause pressure to build and blow back into the reserve tank on a ford 6.0

A stuck thermostart will cause the engine to overheat and coolant will be expelled back into the reserve tank.

Oil in water reserve tank

you checked your water in the reserve tank and there is water in it? well awesome man good to know!! ha ha there is water in mine too,

no but seriously i think you mean oil right?
if you have oil in your antifreeze reserve tank it usually means you have a blown head gasket, and that you will need to replace,
take it to a mechanics shop you trust as it will be not a cheap fix because they will need to take off the head to get to it.
