I ran out of gas the other day so I stopped and put it on reserve and it still wouldn't start. I thought since the reserve is probably at the bottom of the petcock it might have had something blocking it. I took off the petcock and the on side is just about a 1-1.5" tube/screenfilter sticking up from the petcock. The whole thing was a screen. Is this normal or is mine missing something. I just don't see why they put a reserve on the petcock if the on is basically the same as the reserve but with just a tube/screen sticking up.

Huh huh! Now I know why i was out of gas! I'm a missing the big one "ON"


Unless someone else took the petcock off, the tube should be rattling around in the tank somewhere.

I'm gonna check. The guy who had it before me was mechanically challenged and I think he had a local shop tune it up and put on an inline fuel filter. A few shops around here have a bad rep and I've seen first hand how bad a few have been. Anyways thanks for the pics. Now I just have to find the tube or get another one.
