The petcock valve on the Bigboy TSR 250. What position must the valve handle be when driving. Please explain the 3 positions on the valve.


Is the tap vacuum operated? There will be a pipe from the carb to the tap if there is, and when the engine is running the vacuum from the carb pulls on a diaphragm and opens the flow.
If this is the case, the 3 positions are "PRIME", "MAIN" and "RESERVE".
Disconnect the pipe from the outlet of the tap, but be prepared for fuel to come out. If it does, then the tap is set in the prime position so move it to another setting to stop it. If it doesn't start flowing then the tap is set to main or reserve.
Main and reserve are self explanatory and are standard on most bikes, but prime is not on as many. Never ride on prime as this just allows fuel to flow freely and is only used to start a long standing bike or one that has been run to empty. It does what it says and primes the carb. Once running switch over immediately to main or reserve.

Which way to turn the reserve tank switch on


There are 3 positions (as you probably know). Reserve, on and prime. Under normal conditions with a properly working fuel tap, prime is the by-pass that allows fuel to flow through without the engine running. On and reserve will only allow fuel to pass when the engine is running (uses vacuum from the carb).
  • PRIME has the handle facing down
  • ON is when it is facing the front
  • RESERVE when it faces the rear.
Do not leave the tap in the prime position EVER as this allows the fuel to fill the carb and with the engine running or attempting to start will cause hydrolock that will bend the pistons con-rods. Only use it to fill the carb with fuel and turn it to on or reserve as soon as you can.
If the bike runs using the prime position but will not run when on or reserve, then you may have a vacuum problem or a dodgy tap......assuming you have fuel that is.
Hope that helps.

78 susuki gs 750 petcock has no markings center is run wheres reserve and is there an off


95% of the time centre is on forward is reserve and back is off, simple way to make sure is remove the hose at the tap and try it like that, you will have 2 positions where fuel is flowing, on and reserve, the 3rd off.

My 1994 zxr750 has got a problem with fuel tap when in the run position after a few miles it feels like it is runing out of fuel but put it to reserve and it runs fine but the fuel tank is full? help


94 zx7s have separate hoses that sit at the very back end of the tank. They take a nice twisty course to get to the tank. Could be that the main line is kinked and the reserve is not.

Or you may need to rebuild the petcock. I've got 3 ZX7s, 93, 94, and a 01. None of them had petcock issues but I've had fuel line routing issues before. So I'd check the lines first before servicing the petcock.

On my 1994 fireblade which way should the fuel tap face for normal tank compared to reserve? my fuel tap is long at one end and short at the other but which end is normal for fuel?


Start with the fuel tap (called a petcock) in the horizontal position. This is pointing toward the back of the bike, and it is in the "off" position. Turning it counter-clockwise to point up is "on," and turning it clockwise to down is "reserve."

Normally, you'll want to run the bike with the petcock set to on, and save the reserve for the emergency situation when you run out of fuel.

Where is the prime position on the fuel on a GSX 750 fn


THIS IS QUITE EASILY RECTIFIED, REMOVE THE FUEL LINE FROM THE TAP,SLOWLY TURN THE TAP FROM 1 DIRECTION TO THE OTHER, WHEN FUEL FLOWS READILY FROM THE OUTLET ON THE TAP, NOTE THE POSITION ON THE TAP AS FUEL WILL ONLY FLOW WHEN IN PRIME POSITION. {VACUME TYPE TAP REQUIRES ENGINE TO RUN FOR FUEL TAP TO OPEN, WHEN NOT RUNNING FUEL SHOULD ONLY EXIT THE TAP IN PRIME POSITION). REASON FOR FUEL FLOW WHILE NOT RUNING WITH TAP IN ANY POSITION, COULD BE DIAPRAM FAILURE IN TAP.

Hi, On the fuel tap what is the Prime position function.


You have a vacuum operated fuel tap. It should have 'on' , 'res' and 'prime'.
In the prime position fuel will always flow from the tank. In the other positions the engine must be running to allow fuel to flow. If the bike has been standing for a few days, fuel will evaporate from the carbs and the bike can be difficult to start. By switching to prime for a minute, the carbs are replenished and starting should be easy. Dont forget to return the tap to on or reserve once started.
