Recent shut off valves don't have an off position anymore it's been replaced with PRi which is prime..The petcock lever has a long side and a short side.w/long side pointed down that is ON..long side up that is RESERVE..halfway between is PRIME which is used when cycle has sat for a long time or has run out of gas...off is not used anymore cause the petcock is vacuum actuated and only lets gas flow when engine is running...except for PRIME, these should all be printed/stamped on your petcock...Good luck to you friend....Tim

SOURCE: fuel filter replacement

hello
it may be possible that as long as you just ran out of fuel. that the system needs to reprime with fuel. when the carbs were ran dry. the fuel lines ran empty as well. there is a fuel pump that only works when the motor is cranking over. so the more you crank over the more fuel will start to refill the fuel lines and float bowls to help start again.

SOURCE: what position is the reserve on the fuel valve

The flag or handle will be pointing a way from res.
If you get down in front of it you will see a groove or a raised area that points to on, res or off.

I dont have a fuel shut off valve for my suzuki gs550l where is the best place to get one


are you sure you don,t have a shut off , should be on the left or right side under fuel tank , if you do need one go to any motorcycle shop ,be sure to get one with a off , on , reserve , the reserve is for when you run out of gas in the on position flip it to reserve and hope theres enough gas to get you to gas station

Where is the fuel shut off valve on a 2004 RK fltr


Hi Anonymous, if you have a carbuerator the petcock/fuel valve is located on bottom rear of the left side of the fuel tank. With the long end of the lever pointing straight back the fuel valve is in the off position and no fuel will flow to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight down the valve allows fuel flow from the gas tank to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight forward it is in reserve mode and you have roughly 1/2 to 1 gallon of fuel left in the gas tank. If you are fuel injected the is a low fuel warning light either on the dash or speedometer. If you have a fuel gauge refuel before it hits empty just like your car. Good luck and have nice day.

Just got a trophy 3. dont know what position is which on the fuel tap? no markings.


Usually the fuel valve is this
Straight Down = ON
Straight Up = RESERVE
Horizontal/Across = OFF
There may be some difference with the manufacturers, or with custom fuel valves (chrome), also, fuel injected bikes usually do not have reserve or reserve position on fuel valve. If you have fuel injected bike, they do not like to be run out of gas, keep the gas level up.

What is the position of the fuel tank on/off/reserve valve when the valve is in the on position? I just bought the honda and have no manual. I moved the valve and thought I moved it back to where it was...


the on position is controlled by intake vacuum and shuts down the flow when not running, reserve bypasses this and can be used for priming the engine, off means off, i hope this helps

How to refill the reserve gas tank 1981 Honda CX500 motorcycle


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
