Petcock issue

Recommended Posts

I'm riding on a full tank, at 35miles I had to hit reserve!...filled er up and rode some more, sputtered again only 40 miles into this tank, had to hit reserve again. Tank was allot Lower than it should've been, where the fuel is going I have no idea. Oil does not smell of gas...neither is it registering high on dip stick, no leaking I can see...just strange. Any ideas brother drz'ers

How much fuel do you put in to fill up after you hit reserve?

Could be a clogged petcock filter. If not and your sure its not leaking the only other place gas can go is out the exhaust.

1st time it held 1.6, the other 2 times just about exactly what it should have taken. I drained the oil today and it did NOT smell like gas?...I'm running it on reserve now with a full tank and gonna see what that does. Both time befor it's right at 40-50 miles it happens...

Stock tank and petcock 'bout normal, at least it's not a 2 mile reserve.  There's usually some gas hiding on the right side of the tank.
