SOURCE: just got 1st bike a 2001 yamaha vstar in which

Prime:
This is the position you would use only if your carburetor bowl is empty, and that usually only happens after the bike has been sitting unused for a long time - like over the winter. You should NOT run normally with the petcock set to Prime, because it lets gas flow to the carb freely - whether the engine is running or not. It is to be used for priming the carburetor bowl only.

On: This is the setting you should use regularly. It is enabled by a vacuum-operated diaphragm, so it only allows fuel to flow when the engine is running. When the engine isn't running, the diaphragm is closed. Therefore, no fuel will flow from the tank to the carb.

Reserve: This setting is works almost like the ON setting. It is enabled by a vacuum-operated diaphragm as well. The only difference is that it uses a different fuel pickup tube whose opening is lower in the tank, therefore it can access the last bit of available gasoline.

Hope this helps!

Those are your PRImary and REServe tanks, although it's actually just two valve openings at different levels in the same fuel tank.

The idea is to use the primary tank all the time and if the fuel level falls below the primary inlet the bike will stop as a warning that you're running out of gas. You can then use the reserve setting to get to a gas station.

Gas tank


no...Full is on...res is reserve...Pri is Prime.
Do not leave it on prime !!! This is for re-filling the carbs when they have been emptied.
It is a vacuum operated tap, when switched to full or reserve, fuel only flows when the engine turns over...prime flows fuel all of the time.
The tap should be set to full unless fuel is running low.
Leaving it on prime when not running can lead to serious engine damage !!!

How to Drain Reserve Petrol Tank


Hi there and welcome to fixya,

YOu'll need to remove the fuel valve underneath the tank. That's the surest way to drain the fuel inside. Another option is to drain it by switching the fuel selector to "res" or reserve so fuel will drain lower (the reserve part).

Hope this helps,

The fuel pump on my 2000 FXDWG has a 3 position dial. From at 9 o'clock it says "off", at 12 o'clock it says "Res", and at 6 o'clock it says "on". Common sense would say to put it to off if you are not...


That dial is not you fuel pump. It is your fuel valve. On means that you are allowing fuel to go to the engine, off means that you are shutting all fuel to the engine, and res is short for reserve. Reserve is only used when your engine dies or starts to sputter while engine is running. If you keep enough gas in you tank you should never have to use res.

Lt-f250x fuel vale has on- res-pri what is the pri position for


( PRI ) is the primer position for the petcock ( fuel valve) . This position is used for a couple of reason. this kind of valve works off vacuuum from the carbs, but if you run out of fuel you or remove the tank you can't create vacuum, so putting the valve into the PRI position allows fuel to flow inton the carbs without vacuum so you can start the bike. Once the bike has started you should switch the valve back to the ON position ON= normal position, PRI= primer position, RES= reserve postion. I hope this helps!!!

How do you switch to reserve fuel tank on a Honda CRB 125?


Move the lever to RES position. If no RES, find the OFF and the ON, the RES is the other position.

Positions "Reserveswitch"


The On position is where you run the bike after filling the tank. The Res position is when you are almost out of fuel and the motor stutters you turn the switch it it and that will give you about 1/2 a gallon of gas left in the tank to get to a gas station and refill. Pri is for priming the carbs only. If you have ran out of gas after using the reserve fuel you switch it to this position to fill the float bowls with fuel. Do this for only 30 seconds and switch it back to On position.

Fuel Reserve switch


Typically there are three positions to choose from. On means you are using the main tank. Reserve means reserve tank and off means no fuel available from either tank. the off setting is used when trailering your bike.
