Most non fuel injected bikes do have a reserve, under the tank on the fuel valve where the line goes from the tank to the carb..:)

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.

Why is my 535 virago not going on reserve tank

Apparently this is a common problem that I also have. Another website said that there is not a true reserve. This bike is designed to slow down the fuel pump when the reserve switch is on the "on" position and the fuel is low to give you the sense that you are running out of gas. My solution, reset the trip meter each time you get gas and make sure you fill up before reaching 100 miles.

How do you know your going to run out of gas before you do???

You dont ...

Several things for your consideration.

You should be able to ride for about 100 miles on a full tank. Fill up every 100 miles.

There should be a three way valve on your tank; OFF - ON - RESERVE. NEVER set this to RESERVE unless you miss the 100 mile fill up. Otherwise, you will be walking.

You may be able to go 150 miles on a tank ... DONT DO IT. @ 90 miles, start looking for a station where you can fill up. Your pututti will also thank you.

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.

Is there a fuel reserve on a 99 victory

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.
