there is a baffel in the tank,...

"ON" is were you should have it most of the time,...
it draws from the top of the tank,...

when it starts to 'sputter', reach down and turn it to "RES",
and it will start to draw from the bottom of the tank,
below the baffel,....

then you need to get more gas!!!

~ Greg



ps "OFF" is for when you want to take the tank off the bike!

No baffle in the tank Greg.
The petcock has 2 sets of holes with screens over them. The higher hole is where the fuel comes in on "ON". When you switch to Reserve the lower hole opens...
Damn old people...

'tiz true,...

and on 'most' bikes,...

like my R6,...

there is a baffel going from side to side,...
horizontally, between the two holes,...
to keep the fuel from 'sloshing' around,...
to keep the fuel from affecting the steering,...

but I hear that ZX9's can't go that fast awayz,... :o

so maybe they don't have/need a baffel?!

Um...if it is horizontal how does it keep the fuel from sloshing around?? Wouldn't it need to be vertical to stop fore and aft movement of fuel?? The metal plate you are talking about is there for tank strength. It has nothing to do with the "reserve" function (which was the original question).
And stop picking on my 9...we can't help it if we are slow!

Never worry about asking questions...there are no stupid ones. Everyone had to learn sometime. I've been doing this awhile and I'll never be done learning...
I can't take credit for the quote...saw it on a shirt at the races. The testosterone was pretty high in here a few weeks back and I thought it was a good time to use it...
