When the gas tank is empty and bike will not run, turn ball cock to reserve and there is always a limited supply of fuel to allow you to start and get to closest fueling station. NOTE, remember to turn ball back to "on" after you refuel or you will not have a reserve next time.

My bike bike runs on main tank even on low fuel..it somtimes shows some missing. I think my reserve tank doesn't work.Any suggestions?


Check the reserve fuel line and the main fuel line to make sure they haven't been switched. I purchased a Suzuki Intruder and was riding all the way to reserve to check the mileage and when I ran out I couldn't start it even though I switched to reserve. Turns out that someone had the tank off to service the air cleaner and had reversed the two fuel lines so the fuel valve was running the bike on the reserve tank tube. so when I switched to the reserve position it was hooked to the taller brass tube in the tank and the gas level was already below it. The tanks just have two brass tubes, one taller than another so gas cannot be sucked below the taller tube when on main and then when switched to reserve it sucks from the shorter tube allowing the remaining gas to be used.

I drove my '99 Yamaha roadstar about 75 miles. Made a stop and when I got back on a couple blocks down the road the bike started acting like it was running out of gas and died. It's not out of gas


Are you certain? Motorcycles typically have a valve on them with an OFF, ON and RESERVE position. It is the same tank, the valve dictates whether you are ON or on RESERVE. You can have fuel in the tank and not be able to use it because the valve is in the ON position not RESERVE. Never operate normally in RESERVE ... the RESERVE is to get you home.

93 fxr runs out of gas on reserve in 2miles.I've pulled the vale and filter all good.IS used to get 30 miles on reserv y the change ? Can enyone help


My friend, the reserve is to get you to the gas station not the next town. Only a foolish person depends on the reserve for transportation. Do not count on the reserve ... fill up every 100 miles and you will never run out of gas. Forget the reserve setting. The ONLY reason for a reserve position is to account for the lack of a fuel gage. Stop pushing your luck. There is nothing wrong with your bike.

Caliber 115 giving jerks on running witch like there is no petrol in the bike/ at the time of Fuel on to reserve.


Three possibilities: You are turning the gas valve the wrong way to get to the reserve position, The reserve fuel intake filter is plugged with some trash or condensation has accumulated in the bottom of the gas tank and ( when on reserve ) the gas valve is feeding water instead of gas. Drain the carb and the gas tank to remove any water. Please rate my answer.

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.

How find out reserv or main at petrol tank


Do you have a petcock on the bottom of the gas tank? If so, if you have a "reserve" the petcock will have three positions, off, regular and reserve. If you only have a two position petcock you have no reserve function. Petcocks work by taking the gas in the petcock tube higher up in the gas level, once the gas level drop below a certain level on the gas tank pickup tube, the petcock has to be switched to reserve where the tube picks up gas at a lower level. Hope this is not too confusing.

How can I get old fuel out of the reserve tank on '82 Honda Magna 750? I hope to not need to remove tank.


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.
