NC50 reserve?


what is the "reserve" on my petcock? what does it do?


Re: NC50 reserve?

The main petcock setting is fed through a short vertical tube sticking up inside the tank. When fuel level drops to the top of that tube, the bike runs out of fuel.

Moving the petcock to "Reserve" draws fuel from a point lower down in the tank and about a cup of reserve fuel is then available... hopefully enough to get home or to a gas station.

2 liters on the main setting and 0.2 liters on reserve.. An NC50 shop manual is here
