Question about 1999 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

I ran out of gas with my 1998 vt750. It is supposed to have a .9 gallon reserve. I usually run with the valve turned to 'on'. When I turned the valve to 'reserve' it was dry. Is something wrong or am I running the valve in the wrong position? Thanks, DG

Either the intake tube on your fuel petcock has fallen off, Your petcock has worn out and is allowing fuel from the reserve position to leak into the on position hole , or you had the lever in the wrong position. If you had the petcock turned to the correct positions, the you may want to drain the tank and remove the pet **** for inspection. If the fuel inlet tube for the ON position has fallen off, you in effect, have no reserve. If the petcock is worn out you will need to replace it so it will work the way it is supposed to.

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.

Face the fuel valve 12 o'clock is ON, 9 o'clock is off, 3 o'clock is reserve.

Fuel reserve tank


OFF whenever engine is off
ON during normal running
Fuel when bike starts jerking, because of running out of fuel. Turns on RESERVE (about 1/2 gallon left).

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.

Just got a trophy 3. dont know what position is which on the fuel tap? no markings.


Usually the fuel valve is this
Straight Down = ON
Straight Up = RESERVE
Horizontal/Across = OFF
There may be some difference with the manufacturers, or with custom fuel valves (chrome), also, fuel injected bikes usually do not have reserve or reserve position on fuel valve. If you have fuel injected bike, they do not like to be run out of gas, keep the gas level up.

Almost ran out of gas. put 5 gallons in tank.


worst thing for fuel pumps is to run dry. The pressure will need to be confirmed. If none ,you overheated the pump and it will need to be replaces.

Where is the reserve tank


Is your bike fuel injected or carbureted? If it is fuel injected the tank has a 4.5 gallon tank and that's it. If it is carbureted the fuel petcock is a three position valve (ON, OFF, RES), the valve is configured in the tank where ON allows fuel to flow until you are down to about 1/2 a gallon at which time you would turn the petcock to RES which allows the engine to use the last 1/2 gallon of fuel and gives you time to hunt down a gas station.

There is no separate "reserve" fuel tank.

Just wanted to determine, for a Kawasaki bayou 220, the fuel lever positions for fuel Off VS On (ON = vertical?).


The valve is open when the lever and valve are parallel. Generally that is down. When the lever is pointing across the valve it is closed. Think T vs. I. If the lever and valve cross it's closed, if they go the same way it's open.

That applies to a two position valve, if your Bayou has a reserve postion it could be different. That would be three positions and across one way would be open, down would be reserve, and across the other way would be closed. Should be marked on the petcock if that is the case.

Ran out fo Gas


There is a port in the fuel line that looks like a tire valve stem) it will have a plastic cap on it), have someone depress the shrader valve in the port and see if any fuel comes out while you crank it, also the gas may have gone bad, you also need a full charge on the battery so you can get it turning fast enough to fire the engine, a low battery starves the fuel pump of voltage, it runs slow and causes low fuel pressure issue.
