Question about 1999 kawasaki ZXR 400
What positions are on/off/reserve on the fuel shut off valve.
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
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.

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.

The 2005 does not have the "fuel gauge" LCD display like the Volusias- it has only an amber fuel light that will come on when you ahve about 1.5 gallons left.
