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.

SOURCE: 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,
matt

SOURCE: Where is the reserve fuel switch...

You have fuel injection? If so, no reserve AFAIK. In the carb version, the gastank fuel petcock is the fuel reserve switch, the lever's normal position is straight down, reserve position is straight up, off is sideways.

1984 Virago 1000 starts and runs great to 2500 rpm then it quits


Hi, Karen and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

How dose the reserve switch work on my Yamaha virago xv400?


Reserve switches usually open a fuel inlet/siphon that is located lower in the gas tank giving you some extra fuel so you can get to a gas station.

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.

Where is the reserve switch on a 1985 yamaha viargo


Many motorcycle models do not have a reserve if they have a fuel gauge.

If you do have a reserve selector, it will be part of the device bolted to the bottom of the tank that the fuel line is attached to.

I think though that you have an automatic shutoff that only allows fuel flow when vacuum is present (eliminating the "On/Off" selector), a fuel gauge, and no reserve system.

not that familiar w/Yamaha,but disconnected vacuum hoses may connect to fuel petcock at tank.I know Honda uses a system that only allows fuel to flow when vacuum is supplied.
