Question about Tank Motorcycles

Open Question

I have a Johnson 115 which has an oil injection system and I want to carry a small reserve tank as emergency fuel source. Will the oil injection still work if a portable emergency tank is connected?

SOURCE: johnson 4 stroke 115 hp will not start. fuel

Sounds like and injector problem to me. If it was a 2 stroke I'd tell you to pull the carbs and clean them ,but EFI is a whole different story. Most certaintly a fuel problem, most likely injector related, you'll most likely need to go see a marine mechanic with the proper equipment to analyze, rather than start replacing parts you may not need.

How to switch to reserve


If your tank has a petcock tap it has a reserve if the tap can rotate up towards the tank
But most bikes don't have a reserve now if fuel injected and a fuel gauge fitted

Johnson 115 V4 no push at low revs and no oil alarm at hi revs


Good Morning George,
First Thing To Do Is Use Pre Mixed Fuel Until This Problem Is Solved Or Engine Damage Could Be The Result.
Pre Mix Fuel -Oil Ratio Is 50:1
Have You Tried Priming The Oil With The Primer On The Oil Tank Supply Line?
Is The Oil Tank In The Boat Low On Oil?
Let Me Know If You Have Any Luck!

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.

Since the Suzuki is a 2 stroke engine.....HOw was the oil mixed? Directly in the fuel tank?


Those models had an oil tank and oil injection system to inject oil into the crankcase. We recommend plugging off the original oil injection system in favor of mixing the oil with the fuel on these older models unless you are sure that the stock system is working properly.

I just got a 1996 harley hertiage softtail--does it have a reserve tank valve? since ther is no gas gauge?


If your bike does not have a fuel gauge it's probably not fuel injected either. If this is the case, you should have a reserve setting on your fuel petcock unless it has been changed. Look closely at your petcock. It should have "on", "off", and "res" on it somewhere but the letters will probably be pretty small.

The '96 models were the first model to have the vacuum operated petcock and they were notorious for giving problems. Your petcock may have already been changed due to this. If not, I'd recommend installing a high quality manual petcock like a PIngle. They aren't cheap but it beats being stranded with a full tank of fuel in the tank but none in the carb.

Good Luck

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.
