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
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
I can only offer a few guesses as what it may be, not the solution. if the bike has been sitting for a little bit you may have cause what is called gumming or varnishing. This is where the fuel crystalizes causeing restrictions... everywhere! hit up an auto store buy some sea foam carb cleaner.... i believe that what its called or similar. Drain the old fuel ( i know it sucks but a bad tank of gas can cause many problems) Fill up high octane ad some of the cleaner.. ride the hell out of it most of the varnish will flush out. also with the petcock on "on" setting. The reserve works on a system call stand pipes one taller than the other, when the fuel lever gets below the one then - its time for reserve, anyway some of these stand pipes have filters and can clog up, if you have mechanical experience, they can be taken out easily and cleaned. Lastly a problem I recently had, during mid 3s to high 4000 rpm i had a similar problem. Bad fuel equalls bad plugs, pull them, clean em, inspect them and regap them. solved my problem.... also im assuming you have a carb and not fuel injected... good luck
there is no fuel pump cut off switch on this car, it is possible the fuel pump module was damaged from this accident, u will have to have the fuel pump circuit tested for faults before replacing the pump, don't guess, this is an expensive repair
