You can download a free PDF service manual at the site below. I know there is a 1990 manual in the list. That will be close enough to to your 1988 to get the job done. Not much change in two years.
http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Most of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.
Or you can go to www.repairmanuals.com and probably purchase a 1988 manual there.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

A fuel tap normally has 3 pipes, 2 in and 1 out. If you have a fuel tap they you have a manual reserve. The first pipe will be linked to a long tube (main fuel supply) the second will be linked to the "reserve. It is all in the same tank space. When the fuel gets low the main pipe will **** air and the bike will starve fuel. Switch to the reserve and you will be drawing from the lower pipe (reserve, ie start looking for a fuel station) It is not recommended to use the reserve as the fuel in your tank normally has sediment at the bottom and blocks your filters. This sediment comes from the tank rusting and from the fuel pumps drawing bits from the concrete fuel tanks at the fuel stations.
If you strip the tap you will be able to see which is the main and which is the reserve.
Hope this helps
