SOURCE: Fuel shut off valve

Recent shut off valves don't have an off position anymore it's been replaced with PRi which is prime..The petcock lever has a long side and a short side.w/long side pointed down that is ON..long side up that is RESERVE..halfway between is PRIME which is used when cycle has sat for a long time or has run out of gas...off is not used anymore cause the petcock is vacuum actuated and only lets gas flow when engine is running...except for PRIME, these should all be printed/stamped on your petcock...Good luck to you friend....Tim

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.

78 susuki gs 750 petcock has no markings center is run wheres reserve and is there an off


95% of the time centre is on forward is reserve and back is off, simple way to make sure is remove the hose at the tap and try it like that, you will have 2 positions where fuel is flowing, on and reserve, the 3rd off.

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 1994 zxr750 has got a problem with fuel tap when in the run position after a few miles it feels like it is runing out of fuel but put it to reserve and it runs fine but the fuel tank is full? help


94 zx7s have separate hoses that sit at the very back end of the tank. They take a nice twisty course to get to the tank. Could be that the main line is kinked and the reserve is not.

Or you may need to rebuild the petcock. I've got 3 ZX7s, 93, 94, and a 01. None of them had petcock issues but I've had fuel line routing issues before. So I'd check the lines first before servicing the petcock.

On my 1994 fireblade which way should the fuel tap face for normal tank compared to reserve? my fuel tap is long at one end and short at the other but which end is normal for fuel?


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.

Where is the prime position on the fuel on a GSX 750 fn


THIS IS QUITE EASILY RECTIFIED, REMOVE THE FUEL LINE FROM THE TAP,SLOWLY TURN THE TAP FROM 1 DIRECTION TO THE OTHER, WHEN FUEL FLOWS READILY FROM THE OUTLET ON THE TAP, NOTE THE POSITION ON THE TAP AS FUEL WILL ONLY FLOW WHEN IN PRIME POSITION. {VACUME TYPE TAP REQUIRES ENGINE TO RUN FOR FUEL TAP TO OPEN, WHEN NOT RUNNING FUEL SHOULD ONLY EXIT THE TAP IN PRIME POSITION). REASON FOR FUEL FLOW WHILE NOT RUNING WITH TAP IN ANY POSITION, COULD BE DIAPRAM FAILURE IN TAP.

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...


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 1996 750 Katana runs but it will only run with


You may need to rebuild the fuel tap with a new diaphram kit.

The fuel tap has a small rubber diaphram and plunger, which can go hard, stick closed , or wear out and get a hole.
Also check the vacumn hose than opperates the tap is in good condition
Pri bypasses the vacumn opperated fuel tap, sometimes this can cause the carbs to flood or have higher than normal float levels..
Running it on prime can also cause the carbs to flood fuel into the engine filling the sump, which then s ucks fuel vapour through the crank breather into the airbox, and then through the carbs causing over rich.
If this has happened you also need to change the oil and fit a new air filter element

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
