I don't agree with sirwriter. I have a V92 and being fuel injected it has what can be considered a petcock but not in the normal sense. It is just part of the fuel loop. When pushed into it's housing the tee fitting has a plunger that supplies the fuel pump. When you turn the key on you can hear the pump prime the system. When the bike is off the fuel just deadheads until activated. As far as the fuel capacity. I normally put about 3.5 gallons back in when my fuel light starts blinking. Do you scroll thru the LCD screen on the headlight housing ? You can set you trip meter and get a better idea just how far your going. But it does not have a reserve setting. That is why the idoit lights starts when you are around a gallon. That way in the next 30-40 miles you can look for a filling station. It will run until there is nothing left.

If it has a fuel petcock under the tank to shut the gas off, then when you turn it straight down it should be in reserve.

Fuel tank reserve capacity


Hi Kumud:
On my KLR 650 the reserve is 0.9 US gallons.
There's really not much point in worrying about "non usable" amount.
What I would recommend, especially if you're going to do any remote riding, is to strap a spare gallon (or 2) to your bike, then go for a ride. When you run out of gas, reset the trip meter to zero, turn on your reserve, and ride until you run out of gas again.
You will now know how far you can go on your reserve. That's the first important part.
Now put you spare gas into the tank and ride off to find a fuel station. Fill the tank, set the trip meter to zero, make sure the fuel selector is set to "ON", and go for a ride until you run out of gas again.
You will now know how far you can go on a full tank before you have to rely on the reserve.
If you use this system it won't matter what machine you have, and depending on your riding technique, the distances will vary.
Gotta love riding!
cheers.

05 kingpin reserve tank


There is no reserve tank on an '05 KP. You have a 4 gallon tank, and a dash light to let you know when you're REALLY low on fuel. I've run mine dry, about ~15 miles or so after it came on. Dang, those things are heavy to push down the shoulder of the highway...suggest you keep an eye on the fuel and not trust the light, although mine has always been reliable.

What is the gas mileage on this bike that holds 4.2 gallons? Also, how do i activate the reserve tank? Just bought this bike and didn't get a manual with it. How many miles can i ride before i need an...


You didn't say what size Star you had.
Mileage for the 650 is listed at 47mpg ---for the 1100 42.8mpg

The indicator on the petcock valve should have a P & R on it--- P, is primary, R is reserve. It's a simple design, with 2 different length pickups on it. So if you can't read the lettering on the valve. remove the fuel line going to the carbs. when your tank is low on fuel--- And you can determine how to set it. The pickup for the reserve gas will be on the back, or looking at it, right side of the valve.

The owners manual states to change oil every 4000 miles and filter every 8000
Personally, i change BOTH every 3000 miles. Clean oil is the key to keeping a V-twin engine happy and running for many miles. SAE 20w50 synthetic is what i use. I believe the manual calls for 20w40, which is fine for break in and while the bike is under warranty.
The choice is yours.

The Clymer service manual, is a handy tool to have. I recommend you get one. Ebay is a good place to find them along with Amazon....

I hope this helps & good luck with your Star...these are good bikes.

I hava a 1992 pontiac grand am . I replaced the fuel tank and the fuel pump. It trys to start but it will not run. It is like it is getting some gas but not enough to start.


Put at least 5 gallons of gas in the tank. Most tank baffles won't let 1 or 2 gallons get to the pump.
Before you do that, go back and make sure everything is hooked up, and no rotten rubber lines at tank and evap connections. If you didn't already, change the fuel filter.

hi.
you are almost certainly low on fuel in the main tank.
the tank only holds a few gallons from completely empty. reserve fuel is a gallon or so, which means that the main tank hold somewhere just under 4 gallons if i remember correctly. my sister had a 1989 virago about 14 years ago, and hers would do about 110miles before she had to fill up again if she was driving around town. look for the fuel tap at the bottom of the tank, and if this happens again, turn the tap on to the reserve setting. it will give you about 30 miles range before running out completely. this is just one of those bikes where you have to fill up quite often due to a small tank. hope this helps

How does the fuel reserve function on my 2002 v max? Does the switch stay in the on pos. meaning fuel is on or does this mean I have the reserve on?


There are two 'pipes' that stick up into the tank from the fuel valve. Your fuel valve has three positions ... Off (obvioius), On (connected to the longer pipe) and Reserve (connected to the shorter pipe) If you run on 'reserve', you wilol run out of gas.

The longer pipe sticks further up into the tank ... when the fuel drops to this level, you immediately know because the engine stops running. Flip to reserve and you switch to the shorter pipe which immediately takes suction.

Fill your motorcycle every 100 miles and you will always have fuel and never have to rely on the reserve.

Sounds like your fuel sending unit has gone bad. I usually fuel up with about a 1.5 or less but believe that the fuel sending unit isn't all that accurate. and I usually get about 130+ miles before low fuel light comes on. hope this is some help.
