SOURCE: on my 1994 fireblade which way should the fuel tap

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.

Choke and fuel tap positions


Hi, Anonymous the usual position for petcock levers is:
1. Lever facing forward is the off position.
2. Lever facing down is the main fuel on position.
3. Lever facing to the rear is the reserve fuel position.
4. Choke lever in the up position means choke is on.
Usually the petcock has on-off-reserve stamped on the face. For more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Which way to turn the reserve tank switch on


There are 3 positions (as you probably know). Reserve, on and prime. Under normal conditions with a properly working fuel tap, prime is the by-pass that allows fuel to flow through without the engine running. On and reserve will only allow fuel to pass when the engine is running (uses vacuum from the carb).
  • PRIME has the handle facing down
  • ON is when it is facing the front
  • RESERVE when it faces the rear.
Do not leave the tap in the prime position EVER as this allows the fuel to fill the carb and with the engine running or attempting to start will cause hydrolock that will bend the pistons con-rods. Only use it to fill the carb with fuel and turn it to on or reserve as soon as you can.
If the bike runs using the prime position but will not run when on or reserve, then you may have a vacuum problem or a dodgy tap......assuming you have fuel that is.
Hope that helps.

I have Hartford 125 hd what position do I need petrol switch in to use bike up or down its 2004


well reserve tank really just takes the tap for the fuel further down in the tank
ie if you place the fuel tap to reserve then you can access the full tank if its on normal you can only access so much down in the tank

anyway its down for reserve and up for main

1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35 service manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day

1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35 how to change the fork seals @


This type of R/R is what I call a straight monkey see...monkey do repair. Undo the drain screw on each fork and drain oil. The bike must be high enough off the ground to slide the sliders off unimpeded. From there let pressure off via the schrader valves on the forks, if so equipped. Remove wheel and unbolt anything attached to sliders because these must be taken to the bench. At the bottom of each slider, remove bolt and slide the slider off fork tube. Take slider to bench and remove internal snap ring and carefully pry the old seals out without damaging anything. Grease the new seals and carefully tap seal into slider evenly. A deep well socket can be used to tap it all the way in. From there it's reverse procedure. Add fork oil to specs.

My xjr1200 fuel petcock reserve is not working. when the tap is on it runs the tank dry without the reserve kicking in to action.


when the tap is in the down position it will only use fuel up to the reserve and you will need to turn the tap up to put it onto the reserve fuel.

My 1995 RVF 400 will only start with the clutch in & stand up after I washed it. @


Hi, Armstrong_ro the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.
