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 to Drain Reserve Petrol Tank


Hi there and welcome to fixya,

YOu'll need to remove the fuel valve underneath the tank. That's the surest way to drain the fuel inside. Another option is to drain it by switching the fuel selector to "res" or reserve so fuel will drain lower (the reserve part).

Hope this helps,

Derbi Cross city 125 Fuel Issues


When you have it on main there is a little pipe that sticks higher up into the gas tank and once the gas get down below the top of the pipe it will start to make the engine sputter and you have to flip the lever over to reserve so the rest of the gas can be used. But once you have used up all the gas in the tank you will be empty. So when ever you flip it to reserve you will only have about a 1/2 gallon of gas left to get you to a gas station to get it filled back up. No there is not a separate tank in side the main tank.

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

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

Take the reading from the reserve to reserve by filling one litre of petrol when the vehicle goes to reserve. (Arrow of the petrol tap should always face main for main and res. for reserve),
