NoGo on reserve
Excuse the living heck out of me if there's info on theis already, but this has happened to me twice, and I haven't seen any posts on this yet.
Here's what goes on: I switch to reserve and baby acts like she's completely out of gas. I stop and slosh the tank around, and there's fuel in it. I fiddle with the petcock and throttle, hoping to prime it, and no result. Someone stops (usually a Harley rider!), goes and gets gas, we put 1-2 gals. in, I start right up and run down the road!.
I'm planning to take the tank off and have a look at the fuel filter/petcock mechanism this weekend (soon as I can minimize the amount of gas i nthe tank I got free from Fatboy rider yesterday). Maybe I've got filter clogs, or a sticky valve, dunno. Anyone had this one? I've seafoamed redently, but this is the second time for this, and the first was pre seafoam, and over six months ago.
