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.

Where is the fuel shut off valve on a 2004 RK fltr


Hi Anonymous, if you have a carbuerator the petcock/fuel valve is located on bottom rear of the left side of the fuel tank. With the long end of the lever pointing straight back the fuel valve is in the off position and no fuel will flow to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight down the valve allows fuel flow from the gas tank to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight forward it is in reserve mode and you have roughly 1/2 to 1 gallon of fuel left in the gas tank. If you are fuel injected the is a low fuel warning light either on the dash or speedometer. If you have a fuel gauge refuel before it hits empty just like your car. Good luck and have nice day.

Reserve fuel tank question...


Hi,
Check that fuel valve, pull out that output fuel hose, turn the valve to "reserve", if fuel flows, that means it works( fuel valve ), if no fuel flows, that valve has STUCK valve flow.

Most bike problem is in that fuel valve.

Hope that helps!

Caliber 115 giving jerks on running witch like there is no petrol in the bike/ at the time of Fuel on to reserve.


Three possibilities: You are turning the gas valve the wrong way to get to the reserve position, The reserve fuel intake filter is plugged with some trash or condensation has accumulated in the bottom of the gas tank and ( when on reserve ) the gas valve is feeding water instead of gas. Drain the carb and the gas tank to remove any water. Please rate my answer.

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,

How does the fuel reserve function on my 2002 v max? Does the switch stay in the on pos. meaning fuel is on or does this mean I have the reserve on?


There are two 'pipes' that stick up into the tank from the fuel valve. Your fuel valve has three positions ... Off (obvioius), On (connected to the longer pipe) and Reserve (connected to the shorter pipe) If you run on 'reserve', you wilol run out of gas.

The longer pipe sticks further up into the tank ... when the fuel drops to this level, you immediately know because the engine stops running. Flip to reserve and you switch to the shorter pipe which immediately takes suction.

Fill your motorcycle every 100 miles and you will always have fuel and never have to rely on the reserve.

What is the position of the fuel tank on/off/reserve valve when the valve is in the on position? I just bought the honda and have no manual. I moved the valve and thought I moved it back to where it was...


the on position is controlled by intake vacuum and shuts down the flow when not running, reserve bypasses this and can be used for priming the engine, off means off, i hope this helps

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.

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
