SOURCE: how to refill the reserve gas tank 1981 Honda CX500 motorcycle

there is only one tank to fill on your bike, your getting confused by the reserve. The reserve is just on the fuel tap itself. It has three positions, on , off and reserve. In the on position your fuel tap will be able to drink about 90% of your fuel tank and then it wont be able to drain anymore, then you must turn your fuel tap to the reserve position and it will be able to drink rest of your tank approx 10% that is left. So next time you fill up at a petrol station make sure your fuel tap is set to on, then when your bike starts to splutter out of fuel you can turn your fuel tap to reserve and get yourself to the petrol station to fill up, making sure you then turn your tap to on again. If you keep running out on the reserve it can cause debris in your tank to clog your carb up.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Fuel Reserve switch

Typically there are three positions to choose from. On means you are using the main tank. Reserve means reserve tank and off means no fuel available from either tank. the off setting is used when trailering your bike.

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.

Where is the reserve switch for a 2001 cbr 929?


Most bikes with a fuel gauge don't have one, they have a warning light. Easiest way to tell is to take a can of fuel with you and run it dry.. shake the bike and see if there is any in the tank.. if there's a good amount in there then you have a reserve. If there is not much in there fill it up with the can and go on your way.

I have a 1997 Cbr Honda Blackbird. The fuel **** was in the off position and the bike ran ok for months. Why would the **** be in this position and would turning it to the on position pose a problem or...


Chances are what you are calling the "off" position is actually the "Reserve" position. Fuel valves usually have two inlet points. The top inlet section feeds the "On" position. The bottom inlet feeds the "Reserve" position. When the gas level in the tank gets lower than the "On" inlet, you must switch to the "Reserve" inlet to continue riding until you run out of gas or refill the tank. Please rate my answer.

Dear P. I have YAMAHA VIRAGO 250 and have a problem with the fuel selector. I tried on all the three positions (ON, Reserve and Primary) but in all the choices I run out off fuel without any extra fuel...


To see what is wrong you will have to drain the tank and take off the fuel tank outlet(filter assembly). What you should see is a tube sticking up with a fuel filter over it. The tube allows the fuel to enter the carburetor down to that level , when the fuel petcock is in the ON position. When you switch to RESERVE the rest of the fuel flows down through a hole at the base of the fuel petcock. If the tube is missing from the fuel tank outlet(filter assembly) or/and the actual fuel petcock switch (sometimes a separate part )you will not have RESERVE. Another way you have no RESERVE is if you have a leaking four hole washer in your fuel selector. This allows the fuel to flow from RESERVE to ON inside the selector valve(gas leaking in petcock but not escaping outside petcock). "Honda" has all sizes of 4 hole washers available, but , the assembly may not be designed to be taken apart and reassembled. In either case you may end up having to buy an assembly to fix your problem.

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.

Fuel reserve


Very doubtful. They haven't used reserves on motorcyles for a while, since the frame design changed to allow for a tank that had no partition in it (it used to sit over the top-tube of the frame, now it sits in the frame instead). The low-level indicator lights also made reserves obsolete.

Hope this helps,

I have 2 extra small pipes coming off of the fuel tap and i dont no what they are.can you please tell me what they are for.for my nc24 vfr 400 honda.


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
