I've been having this problem lately. When I run low on gas and switch to the reserve, the bike dies at first. I'll stop, switch back to normal, and after a bit it starts up again. Switch to reserve and it's OK. Then, a little while back, it started dying like it was empty, but I'd only gone 50 or so miles on the tank. Got it fired up again, went another 30, then died again.

Am I looking at needing to do a petcock rebuild, or does it just need a good cleaning? Either way, can I pull the petcock off while there's fuel in the tank (doubt it)? Or could it be something else?

Sounds good guys, thanks. I'll run through that stuff and let you know how it goes.
