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.

Stupid rookie question from an experienced HD rider: I just bought a 2001 FXD Superglide...my 4th HD in my lifetime, but new model to me. I can't see what position is what on my fuel petcock...which...


It sounds like you have an aftermarket petcock on the bike. I am not familiar with a Harley petcock that has a round knob but then maybe just the knob is an add-on. In 1996, Harley went to a vacuum operated petcock, one that gives lots of problems. I cannot tell you which way is reserve on your petcock. The only way to tell for sure is to pull the petcock out. You'll see a plastic strainer on top of the petcock. Inside the strainer, there is a tube that runs approximately half way up the strainer. Select a position on the petcock valve and blow through the petcock. When you feel the air come out of this tube, this is the "ON" postilion. Right beside this tube inside the strainer is another hole directly into the petcock. Find the position that allows for air to pass through this hole and you've found the "reserve" position. The remaining position should be "off".

Good Luck
Steve

My 1994 zxr750 has got a problem with fuel tap when in the run position after a few miles it feels like it is runing out of fuel but put it to reserve and it runs fine but the fuel tank is full? help


94 zx7s have separate hoses that sit at the very back end of the tank. They take a nice twisty course to get to the tank. Could be that the main line is kinked and the reserve is not.

Or you may need to rebuild the petcock. I've got 3 ZX7s, 93, 94, and a 01. None of them had petcock issues but I've had fuel line routing issues before. So I'd check the lines first before servicing the petcock.

02 road king fuel problems have a half tank of fuel starts misfires and back fires though exhaust and starts hard


If you have a carb equipped bike and the bike has been lowered in the rear, you could be running out of gas on your main fuel switch position. You may have to go to reserve at that point. If the petcock is located at the front of the tank, the fuel is more to the back end of the tanks if the rear end of the bike has been lower. If it's fuel injected, I have no idea.

Good Luck

On my 1994 fireblade which way should the fuel tap face for normal tank compared to reserve? my fuel tap is long at one end and short at the other but which end is normal for fuel?


Start with the fuel tap (called a petcock) in the horizontal position. This is pointing toward the back of the bike, and it is in the "off" position. Turning it counter-clockwise to point up is "on," and turning it clockwise to down is "reserve."

Normally, you'll want to run the bike with the petcock set to on, and save the reserve for the emergency situation when you run out of fuel.

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.

4 yr old fuel in 96 road king with fuel injection


Hi, Take the hose off at the petcock. There is a wire clamp on hose from the valve that comes from the tank. The petcock valve is the one that has the on/off/reserve. If you have a fuel canister with a spout, turn the petcock to the off position, take off the clamp and hose and put the canister spout up to the fitting and turn the petcock to the reserve position to drain the fuel. If it was not previously in the off position you will need to disassemble and clean the carbs and change the fuel filter. Good Luck to you, this should answer the question you asked, if you need additional help please ask.

Just wanted to determine, for a Kawasaki bayou 220, the fuel lever positions for fuel Off VS On (ON = vertical?).


The valve is open when the lever and valve are parallel. Generally that is down. When the lever is pointing across the valve it is closed. Think T vs. I. If the lever and valve cross it's closed, if they go the same way it's open.

That applies to a two position valve, if your Bayou has a reserve postion it could be different. That would be three positions and across one way would be open, down would be reserve, and across the other way would be closed. Should be marked on the petcock if that is the case.
