My motorcycle only has on and reserve.The petcock is vacuum operated.if the engine isn't running to create a vacuum,no gas fows through the petcock.Things have come a long way.The '66 Triumph Bonneville I had a looong time ago,would drain the whole tank of gas out onto the ground,if you forgot to turn the petcock off,because the carbs leaked so bad.And even if you did turn the petcock off,you would still loose a few ounces,because the petcock itself leaked.Then there was the oil.It leaked oil out of everything but the headlight,and that didn't work,because it was made by Lucas.You guys now don't realize how lucky you are.
