I hv Hero Honda CD Deluxe, and facing a issue with Petrol Tank drying (empty) without signalling for Reserve. When Bike petrol cock switch is in ON position it got dried 2 times before showing any sign of reserve. I am sure that there is no fuel leak Or fuel theft. Any idea what could be the reason for this?

well reserve tank really just takes the tap for the fuel further down in the tank
ie if you place the fuel tap to reserve then you can access the full tank if its on normal you can only access so much down in the tank
anyway its down for reserve and up for main
look here in this you tube vid
Sounds like you have trash in your tank or line. I've seen this happen with atv's even though you believe all your fuel going in is clean, stuff can still get in unknowingly to you. I've seen a floating honey bee in a cars fuel tank cause all kinds of problems like that. Owner spent countless hours and dollars replacing sensors, solenoids, and come to find out the dead bee would stay afloat normally, but when the fuel pump pulled it into the screen, the fuel flow would either be minimal or totally stop it all together. Pull that fuel line off and turn your petcock valve on and off to see if fuel comes out good or partially. Your bike may be getting fuel fine during low speed and idle, but upon demand when more fuel is needed to accelerate, the flow is restricted somewhere and it starves the carbs. Hope this helps.
when it is coming to mileage TUNING, it covers only carburettor area, for tuning carburettor tuning first you should want to make the engine to run upto 4000rpm and in that engine rpm only you should want to adjust the Air Screw for 1.5 turns and at last maintain the engine idling condition at 750 ± 10 rpm. then check for 100ml test, or else check reserve to reserve check
Hi, Just disconnect the main fuel hose from the carb rail. Ensure that you have switched the fuel **** to reserve and this will allow the reserve tank to empty. Not all the fuel is going to come out unless you blow air into the fuel tank filler, this will then get a large percentage of the fuel out. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
A fuel tap normally has 3 pipes, 2 in and 1 out. If you have a fuel tap they you have a manual reserve. The first pipe will be linked to a long tube (main fuel supply) the second will be linked to the "reserve. It is all in the same tank space. When the fuel gets low the main pipe will **** air and the bike will starve fuel. Switch to the reserve and you will be drawing from the lower pipe (reserve, ie start looking for a fuel station) It is not recommended to use the reserve as the fuel in your tank normally has sediment at the bottom and blocks your filters. This sediment comes from the tank rusting and from the fuel pumps drawing bits from the concrete fuel tanks at the fuel stations.
If you strip the tap you will be able to see which is the main and which is the reserve. Hope this helps
there is only one tank to fill on your bike, your getting confused by the reserve. The reserve is just on the fuel tap itself. It has three positions, on , off and reserve. In the on position your fuel tap will be able to drink about 90% of your fuel tank and then it wont be able to drain anymore, then you must turn your fuel tap to the reserve position and it will be able to drink rest of your tank approx 10% that is left. So next time you fill up at a petrol station make sure your fuel tap is set to on, then when your bike starts to splutter out of fuel you can turn your fuel tap to reserve and get yourself to the petrol station to fill up, making sure you then turn your tap to on again. If you keep running out on the reserve it can cause debris in your tank to clog your carb up.
hope this helps
