honda vtr 250. reserve swtich

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by mobb, Dec 4, 2006.

  1. I got a 2nd hand vtr250 that didnt come wit a handbook. the reserve switch seems to be unclear. from clockwise it says 1.on 2.off and reserve.
    which one shoud the stich be pointed at permanently? and how long does the reserve tank last? thanks


  2. Mine says this (anticlockwise from the top): reserve, off, fuel. Based on that, point yours at "on" (which is the main).

    The main supply is 10L and the reserve is 3L. Theoretically, its good for at least 50km on reserve but I'd be looking to fill up as soon as I hit reserve.

    thanks chief!
